Abstract

A triphasic phase-vanishing (PV) system comprised of an alkane, perfluorohexanes, and bromine was successfully combined by photoirradiation to efficiently generate hydrogen bromide, which underwent radical addition with 1-alkenes in the hydrocarbon layer to afford terminal bromides in high yields.
