We present time-dependent percent and quantum yield measurements of a photoredox-catalyzed coupling reaction between 1,4-dicyanobenzene and N-phenylpyrrolidine. We also use transient absorption spectroscopy to examine the kinetics within the reaction and use kinetic modeling to extract rate constants and predict how changes in rate constant will impact the quantum yield.
