Visible-Light Mediated Organophotoredox Catalytic Deuteration of Aromatic and Aliphatic Aldehydes
This technology is an organophotoredox strategy that enables directly converting readily accessible aldehydes to their 1-deutero conterparts. The approach is distinct from the reported transition metal catalyzed ionic hydrogen-deuterium exchange (HDE) processes. The power of this new process has not only been demonstrated for aromatic aldehydes, but...
