A photoinduced copper-catalyzed three-component reaction involving carbohalide, alkene and amine has been developed, leading to valuable fluoroalkyl-containing amines. A sole inexpensive CuCl is used as the photo- and coupling catalyst. A broad array of substrates are capable coupling partners. The diverse method is compatible with a broad range of functional groups and can be further applied to the late-stage functionalization of bioactive pharmaceuticals.
