Metal-free, visible-light-mediated, decarboxylative alkylation of biomass-derived compounds

Schwarz, Johanna ; König, Burkhard


This work describes a mild, environmentally friendly method to activate natural carboxylic acids for decarboxylative alkylation. After esterification of biomass-derived acids to N-(acyloxy)phthalimides, the active esters are cleaved reductively by photocatalysis to give alkyl radicals, which undergo C-C bond formation with electron-deficient alkenes. This reaction is catalyzed by the organic dye ...
