Abstract

A carbonylative Mizoroki-Heck reaction using alkyl iodides was achieved with a Pd/photoirradiation system using DBU as a base. In this reaction, alkyl radicals were formed from alkyl iodides via single-electron transfer (SET) and then underwent a sequential addition to CO and alkenes to give β-keto radicals. It is proposed that DBU would abstract a proton α to carbonyl to form radical anions, giving α,β-unsaturated ketones via SET.
