Chemo-selective Vicinal Dichlorination of Alkenes by Iron Ligand-to-Metal Charge Transfer Catalysis

Stahl, Jessica ; Reiter, Thilo ; König, Burkhard


We report the photocatalytic functionalization of terminal alkenes to vicinal dichlorides using visible light and FeCl3 as catalyst, LiCl as chloride source, and air as oxidant. The transformation is proposed to be initiated by ligand-to-metal charge transfer (LMCT) bond homolysis of a Fe-Cl bond giving a highly reactive chloride radical, able to initiate the functionalization of olefins. The ...
