A silver-catalyzed three-component difunctionalization of alkenes by using 2-amino- and 2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone derivatives as the radical-trapping reagents is reported. Various alkenes and 2-amino- or 2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinones with diverse structures and electronic properties are applied to the reaction. The methodology provides an alternative method to access CF3-functionalized alkyl-substituted quinone derivatives which are prevalent structures in bioactive molecules. Furthermore, a plausible radical pathway for the reaction is proposed based on results from primary control experiments.
