Mechanistic Investigations Towards a Successful PET with Breslow-Intermediates

Authors

Abstract

Experimental mechanistic studies to learn about suitable conditions for a successful photocatalytic oxidation of Breslow intermediates.
Key findings
a) address the effect of additives (oxidative, reductive) and assembly effects on PET and the dark reaction,
b) include the experimental support of a SET + HAT sequence directly connecting the primary adduct of aldhyde and NHC and the Breslow intermediate.
