Abstract:


The present review provides an overview of visible light-mediated environment- friendly approaches over the past decade for the formation of carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom framework. This area has recently emerged as a versatile, environmentally benign and green platform for the development of a highly sustainable synthetic methodology. According to the recent advancements, visible light has come to the forefront in synthetic organic chemistry as a powerful green strategy for the activation of small molecules.

Keywords:
