Photoredox-Catalyzed Deoxygenative Intramolecular Acylation of Biarylcarboxylic Acids: Access to Fluorenones

Photoredox-Catalyzed Deoxygenative Intramolecular Acylation of Biarylcarboxylic Acids: Access to Fluorenones
Rehanguli Ruzi, Chengjian Zhu, Muliang Zhang, Keyume Ablajan
An efficient deoxygenative radical cyclization reaction has been reported for the synthesis of fluorenones by employing various biarylcarboxylic acids via photoredox catalysis. Attractive features of this process include generation of acyl radical, which quickly underdone intramolecular radical cyclization. This method marks the first photocatalytic intramolecular acyl radical coupling for constructing carbon–carbon bond, which further synthesizes the valuable fluorenone products with mild conditions, good yields, and good functional-group compatibility.
