Direct, oxidative metal-catalyzed C-H functionalizations of arenes are important in synthetic organic chemistry. Often, (over-)stoichoimetric amounts of organic or inorganic oxidants have to be used in these reactions. The combination of rhodium and photoredox catalysis with visible light allows the direct C-H olefination of arenes. Small amounts (1 mol %) of a photoredox catalyst resulted in the efficient C-H functionalization of a broad range of substrates under mild conditions.
