Catalytic strategies for the α‐C−H functionalisation of primary amines are a major challenge in organic synthesis. A photocatalytic protocol for the α‐C−H alkylation of unprotected primary amines that is amenable to the direct synthesis of α‐tertiary primary amines is reported. This process is readily scalable in continuous flow to provide access to decagram quantities of valuable γ‐lactams and azaspirocycles, for application in drug discovery.
