Abstract

The development of visible-light-mediated synthesis of oxidized amides is reported. The reaction shows a broad substrate scope and highlights a mild nature of the reaction conditions. A range of functional groups are well tolerated in the reaction. Relying on the strategy, a variety of α-alkoxy amino acids are synthesized.
