- ... A visible-light-induced photocatalytic intramolecular cyclization of 2-(1-arylvinyl)benzaldehydes is reported. The reaction is promoted in the presence of an Irᴵᴵᴵ photocatalyst and an amine base at room temperature under the irradiation of blue LEDs, affording 10-methylanthracen-9(10H)-one derivatives in moderate to good yields with tolerance to various functional groups. A series of mechanistic ...
