Photoinduced Hydroarylation and Cyclization of Alkenes with Luminescent Platinum(II) Complexes


10.  In the presence of luminescent [Pt(O^N^C^N)] complexes under visible light (410 nm) irradiation, aryl radicals derived from reductive aryl–chloride/bromide bond cleavage were trapped by aryl alkenes and afforded a series of anti-Markonikov hydroarylated compounds. Besides, a protocol for [Pt(O^N^C^N)]-catalyzed intramolecular photocyclization of acrylanilides to give structurally diverse 3,4-dihydroquinolinones has been developed. (Angew. Chem. Int.
