Abstract

Decarboxylative oxidation of carboxylic acids was developed through visible light-induced photocatalysis with molecular oxygen as green oxidant and copper as co-catalyst. This reaction worked smoothly on α-disubstituted acids and primary acids, and could be potentially used in modifications of natural products. The high efficiency of this transformation was demonstrated on over 40 substrates.
