Catching photons: Visible light, an amine reductant, and a [Ru(bpy)3]2+ photocatalyst can be used to mediate the addition of glycosyl halides into alkenes to synthesize important C-glycosides (see scheme). This method shows the growing potential of photocatalysis to effectively drive useful and difficult chemical transformations.
