Photoorganocatalytic α-oxyamination of aldehydes

2016 ARKIVOC  
Methylene blue catalyzes the visible light-induced organocatalytic α-oxyamination of aldehydes via enamines. The irradiation of 3-phenylpropanal with TEMPO radical in the presence of morpholine as an organocatalyst and methylene blue as a photoredox catalyst gave the desired α-functionalized aldehyde in 75% yield.
