Abstract

A variety of amides are efficiently accessible under mild conditions by intermolecular amino-arylation using a photo Meerwein addition with visible light. The reaction has a broad substrate scope, tolerates a large range of functional groups, and was applied to the synthesis of a 3-aryl-3,4-dihydroisoquinoline.
