Abstract A practical strategy has been described for the preparation of 6-trifluoroethyl-phenanthridine derivatives using a visible-light-promoted trifluoroethylation reaction of 2-isocyanobiaryl with trifluoroethyl iodide. These reactions could be carried out at room temperature in good to excellent chemical yields with good functional group tolerance.
