Blue-Light-Promoted Carbon-Carbon Double Bond Isomerization and Its Application in Syntheses of Quinolines
Org. Biomol. Chem., 2017, Accepted Manuscript
A blue-light-promoted carbon-carbon double bond isomerization in the absence of any photoredox catalyst is reported. It provides rapid access to a series of quinolines in good to excellent yields under simple aerobic conditions. The protocol is direct, catalyst-free and operationally convenient.
