Abstract

A combination of visible light photocatalysis and gold catalysis is applied to a ring expansion-oxidative arylation reaction. The reaction provides an entry into functionalized cyclic ketones from the coupling reaction of alkenyl and allenyl cycloalkanols with aryl diazonium salts. A mechanism involving generation of an electrophilic gold(III)-aryl intermediate is proposed on the basis of mechanistic studies, including time-resolved FT-IR spectroscopy.
