Abstract

The development of innovative methodologies enables the synthetic chemist to construct molecules in new and more efficient ways. Computational modeling has allowed for mechanistic insights and often guided experimental projects, including several oxidative functionalization reactions. Photoredox catalysis has been employed as a new method to access the oxoammonium cation scaffold and its reactivity. These areas are not only sought after by the wider chemical community, but also represent a central theme in this work, namely utilizing synthetically advantageous chemical transformations to forge new bonds in an efficient and environmentally friendly method.
