The synthesis of alkyl boronic esters by direct decarboxylative radical addition of carboxylic acids to vinyl boronic esters is described. The reaction proceeds under mild photoredox catalysis and involves an unprecedented single-electron reduction of an α-boryl radical intermediate to the...

A visible light-driven photocatalytic generation of sulfonamidyl radicals, and application to intramolecular alkene hydroamination, has been accomplished, providing a mild and efficient approach to various functionalized isoxazolidines. The success of this protocol is based on the strategy of oxidative deprotonation...
