The carboxylation of sp3-hybridized C-H bonds with CO2 is a challenging transformation. Herein, we report a visible-light-mediated carboxylation of benzylic C-H bonds with CO2 into 2-arylpropionic acids under metal-free conditions. Photooxidized triisopropylsilanethiol was used as the hydrogen atom transfer catalyst to afford a benzylic radical that accepts an electron from the reduced form of ...
