Abstract: Photochemical reactions are expected to have an increasing role in organic synthesis with the drive towards environment-friendly reactions. Some examples illustrating the scope and versatility of radical alkylation of electrophilic alkenes via photoinduced electron transfer are presented. A few applications in special fields are mentioned.
