Photochemical Formation and Cleavage of C-N Bond

Academic Article


  • A new photochemical method of C-N bond formation has been developed. A properly substituted trityl alcohol can cleave the benzylic C-O bond and replace it with a C-N bond which is stable under the irradiation conditions. The C-N bond can then be photochemically cleaved with the same light source when the nitrogen is protonated. (Chemical Presented).
