General Access to C-Centered Radicals: Combining a Bioinspired Photocatalyst with Boronic Acids in Aqueous Media

Steven Bloom group present in ACS Catalysis a general catalytic platform to access diverse heteroaromatic radicals, aromatic and aliphatic radicals from commercial boronic acids using a cofactor-derived flavin photocatalyst in aqueous media. They showed the capability of these radicals to engage Michael acceptors via single-electron conjugate addition. In this method they demonstrated that water acts as a key solvent and possible reagent for radical generation and open-shell alkylation. Also, they presented an aqueous protocol that help transform aliphatic, aromatic, and heteroaromatic boronic acids to C-centered radicals using a bioinspired flavin photocatalyst.
