Direct visible-light-mediated aminofluorination of styrenes has been developed with high regioselectivity. Shelf-stable N-Ts-protected 1-aminopyridine salt was used as the nitrogen-radical precursor, and the commercially available hydrogen fluoride-pyridine was used as the nucleophilic fluoride source. The synthesis of an analogue of LY503430 was performed to demonstrate the synthetic value of this strategy.
