Generating non-stabilised diazo compounds photochemically

Here we present our latest application note: Synthesis of a pharmaceutical intermediate by cross-coupling with non-stabilised diazo compounds.
Aryl-alkyl cross-couplings represent one of the most important strategies available in synthesis. The use of continuous flow for aryl-alkyl cross-coupling has previously been mostly restricted to metal-catalysed methods; the Suzuki-Miyaura coupling, for example. This application note is based on a method published by Prof. Steven Ley and his group at the University of Cambridge, which uses a UV-150 continuous flow photochemical reactor, equipped with a 9 Watt,  310 nm low pressure mercury lamp to safely access highly reactive diazo compounds.
