Copper-catalyzed asymmetric sp3 C-H arylation of tetrahydroisoquinoline mediated by a visible light photoredox catalyst
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes a highly enantioselective oxidative sp3 C-H arylation of N-aryltetrahydroisoquinolines (THIQs) through a dual catalysis platform. The combination of the photoredox catalyst, [Ir(ppy)2(dtbbpy)]PF6, and chiral copper catalysts provide a mild and highly effective sp3 C-H asymmetric arylation of THIQs.
