- ... We introduce a photocaged diene system (o-quinodimethane thioethers) based on o-methylbenzaldehydes (o-MBAs) that can be activated with visible light. The pioneered system is accessible in a single step from commercially available starting materials in excellent yields. Variable synthetic handles can be attached to the photocaged diene, often without elaborate protecting group chemistry. Full conv ...
