meso-Antracenyl-BODIPY dyad as a new photocatalyst in ATRA reac-tions



We demonstrate that because of the efficient generation of triplet excited state under UV or visible-light irradiation, meso-antracenyl-BODIPY donor-acceptor dyad can catalyze ATRA reactions between bromomalonate and alkenes. This finding paves the way for the design and application of the new type of heavy atom-free organic chromophores for photocatalysis.
