Da Liang Zhu, David James Young, Hong Xi Li

    Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


    Photoredox/meSavetal dual catalysis is a versatile tandem methodology to construct carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds. The focus of this short review is the application of this technology to C(sp 3)-C(sp 3), C(sp 3)-C(sp 2), C(sp 2)-C(sp 2), C(sp 2)-O, and C(sp 3)-O bond formation induced by readily available and inexpensive carbonyl complexes as single electron transfer agents, photosensitizers, or hydrogen atom transfer agents. 1 Introduction 2 Homocoupling of Aryl Halides 3 Functionalization of C(sp 3)-H Bonds 3.1 Dehydrogenation of Alkanes 3.2 Arylation/Alkylation 3.3 Carboxylation 3.4 Acylation 3.5 Hydroalkylation of Olefins 3.6 Hydroalkylation of Imines 4 Benzoylation of Aryl Bromides 5 Aryl Esterification 6 Oxidation of β-Keto Esters 7 Conclusions and Future Outlook.
