Abstract

Four different iridium(iii) polypyridyl complexes with varying excited state lifetimes are used as photocatalysts to study the effect of excited state lifetime on the rate of a prototypical photoredox-catalyzed reaction{,} the trifluoromethylation of quinoline. An improved mechanistic understanding of the photocatalysis is achieved{,} enabling guided optimization of reaction conditions and elucidating the role of the photocatalyst excited state lifetime on the rate of photocatalysis.
