Organic transformations using visible light-mediated photoredox reactions received significant attention in the past several years. Recently, nitroalkenes have emerged as an excellent coupling partner in the visible light-mediated photoredox reactions. Due to the easy availability and diverse reactivity, several methodologies are reported on the photoredox-mediated reactions of nitroalkenes to attain different types of alkenes and heterocycles. Variety of reactions including denitrative coupling reactions, addition reactions and cycloadditions, etc. are reported. However, a review that focuses entirely on this topic has not appeared yet. Considering the synthetic potential of these class of reactions, we provide a summary of various methodologies developed for the reactions of nitroalkenes under visible light photoredox catalysis.
