Deoxygenative Alkylation of Tertiary Amides Using Alkyl Iodides under Visible Light

Sci. China Chem., 2022

A deoxygenative α-alkylation technology has been developed using alkyl radicals, which combines readily available amides and alkyl iodides to build functionally diverse tertiary alkylamines in a single step via merging amides partial reduction with visible-light-mediated radical process.
