Visible-Light-Induced Photocatalytic Aerobic Oxidation/Povarov Cyclization Reaction: Synthesis of Substituted Quinoline-Fused Lactones

A one-step construction of quinoline-fused lactones was achieved by visible-light-induced photocatalytic aerobic oxidation/Povarov cyclization reaction. This method provides a new access to the synthesis of important fused heterocycles under mild reaction conditions.
