Applications of Photoredox Catalysis for the Radical-Induced Cleavage of C-C Bonds
Selective cleavage of C-C bonds forms one of the greatest challenges in current organic chemistry, due to the relative strength of these bonds. However, such transformations are an invaluable instrument to break down and construct new carbon-carbon bonds. To achieve this, photochemistry can be used as a valuable tool to generate radicals and induce the cleavage of these bonds. This review paints a picture of some of the most influential contributions in this field from the last decade.
