Dual NHC/photoredox catalytic synthesis of 1,4-diketones using an MR-TADF photocatalyst (DiKTa)
MetadataShow full item record
The use of the recently reported organic multi-resonant thermally activated delayed fluorescence (MR-TADF) photocatalyst DiKTa allows for the modular synthesis of 1,4-diketones under mild and metal-free conditions. The reaction proceeds via a three-component relay process in the presence of an N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) organocatalyst.
