Photo workflow: A simple and straightforward photocatalytic method for perfluoroalkylation in continuous flow is developed. A photo-microreactor, constructed from commercially available components, enables accelerated photocatalysis employing [Ru(bpy)3Cl2] as photocatalyst under irradiation by blue LED light. A series of electron-rich hetero-aromatics is successfully trifluoromethylated within 8–16 min. Also, a selection of hetero-aromatics is perfluoroalkylated within 10–20 min.
