Photocatalyzed Insertion of CO2 into Benzylic C–H Bonds

University of Regensburg researchers have developed a visible-light-mediated carboxylation of benzylic C–H bonds with CO2 to give 2-arylpropionic acids

The greenhouse gas CO2 could be used as a sustainable chemical feedstock. It can, for example, be used to convert…
