Dual Catalysis Strategies in Photochemical Synthesis.
The interaction between an electronically excited photocatalyst and an organic molecule can result in the genertion of a diverse array of reactive intermediates that can be manipulated in a variety of ways to result in synthetically useful bond const

H-bonding dual activation catalysis.
An octahedral bis-cyclometalated iridium(III) complex catalyzes the enantioselective α-amination of aldehydes with catalyst loadings down to 0.1 mol%. In this metal-templated design, the metal serves as a structural center and provides the exclusive

Photoredox Dual Catalysis.
Nickel/photoredox catalysis is used to synthesize indolines in one step from iodoacetanilides and alkenes. Very high regioselectivity for 3-substituted indoline products is obtained for both aliphatic and styrenyl olefins. Mechanistic investigations

Dual catalysis. Merging photoredox with nickel catalysis: coupling of α-carboxyl sp³-carbons with aryl halides.
Over the past 40 years, transition metal catalysis has enabled bond formation between aryl and olefinic (sp(2)) carbons in a selective and predictable manner with high functional group tolerance. Couplings involving alkyl (sp(3)) carbons have proven

nickel dual catalysis.
The routine application of C(sp3)-hybridized nucleophiles in cross-coupling reactions remains an unsolved challenge in organic chemistry. The sluggish transmetalation rates observed for the preferred organoboron reagents in such transformations are a

Ni Dual Catalysis for the Synthesis of Benzylic Ethers.
Single-electron transmetalation has emerged as an enabling paradigm for the cross-coupling of Csp(3) hybridized organotrifluoroborates. Cross-coupling of α-alkoxymethyltrifluoroborates with aryl and heteroaryl bromides has been demonstrated by employ

Dual gold catalysis: a novel synthesis of bicyclic and tricyclic pyrroles from N-propargyl ynamides.
Various N-propargyl ynamides were converted to bicylic and tricyclic pyrroles by the use of a cationic dual-activation gold catalyst. This reaction starts with the nucleophilic addition of a gold acetylide onto an ynamide triple bond at the β-positio

Nickel Dual Catalysis.
Hypervalent alkylsilicates represent new and readily accessible precursors for the generation of alkyl radicals under photoredox conditions. Alkyl radicals generated from such silicates serve as effective hydrogen atom abstractors from thiols, furnis

Dual catalysis with copper and rhenium for trifluoromethylation of propargylic alcohols: efficient synthesis of α-trifluoromethylated enones.
Trifluoromethylation of propargylic alcohols to provide (Z)-α-trifluoromethylated enones and β-unsubstituted α-trifluoromethylated enones proceeded with high yield and selectivity in the presence of CuI/Re2O7. The Z isomer was formed under kinetic co

Indenylmetal Catalysis in Organic Synthesis.
Synthetic organic chemists have a long-standing appreciation for transition metal cyclopentadienyl complexes, of which many have been used as catalysts for organic transformations. Much less well known are the contributions of the benzo-fused relativ
