摘要：The asymmetric difunctionalization of alkenes, a method transforming readily accessible alkenes into enantioenriched chiral structures of high value, has long been a focal point of organic synthesis. Despite tremendous efforts in this domain, it remains a considerable challenge to devise enantioselective oxidative dicarbofunctionalization of alkenes, even though these transformations can utilize stable and unfunctionalized functional group donors. In this context, we report herein a photoelectrocatalytic method for the enantioselective heteroarylcyanation of aryl alkenes, which employs unfunctionalized heteroarenes through C–H functionalization. The photoelectrochemical asymmetric catalysis (PEAC) method combines photoredox catalysis and asymmetric electrocatalysis to facilitate the formation of two C–C bonds operating via hydrogen (H2) evolution and obviating the need for external chemical oxidants.
