Shine a light: A fluorescent light-induced synthetic method for the title compounds has been developed and the chemoselective nature of the reaction is highlighted by the observation of the cis/trans isomers of various N-unsubstituted imines. The synthetic utility of this method is demonstrated by the one-pot imine formation/asymmetric allylation sequence of benzyl azide catalyzed by 1. (Ipc=isopinocampheyl).
