The visible-light mediated oxidative C–C bond cleavage of aldehydes has been achieved in good yields at ambient temperature and open to air using Ru(bpy)3Cl2 (bpy = 2,2′-bipyridine) as the photoredox catalyst. Moreover, we further demonstrated the application in a tandem Michael/oxidative C–C bond cleavage reaction.
