A metallaphotoredox reaction is described that allows for the efficient exploration of benzyl structure-activity relationships on electron-deficient amines. Typically, accessing a variety of benzyl groups on these substrates can be difficult due to the limited availability of the prerequisite building blocks, namely benzyl halides. However, the use of aryl bromides in this metallaphotoredox reaction allows for greater diversity in the benzyl piece. The reaction scope is discussed herein, including conditions for product scaleup using flow.
