Intermolecular Formyloxyarylation of Alkenes by Photoredox Meerwein Reaction

Yao, Chang Jiang ; Sun, Qiu ; Rastogi, Namrata ; König, Burkhard


The intermolecular formyloxylation−arylation of stilbenes occurs in the presence of diazonium salts, a photocatalyst, visible light, and DMF. The photo-Meerwein addition products are obtained in good yields up to 76%. We propose the formation of an iminium ion intermediate, which is hydrolyzed to the product
