An Eosin Y-catalyzed visible light-promoted 1,4-peroxidation–sulfonylation of enynones was achieved to give tetrasubstituted allenes. The photoredox catalysis of Eosin Y allowed the concomitant formation of peroxy and sulfonyl radicals, where the preferential peroxy radical addition to the alkene moiety of enynones resulted in the subsequent α-keto radical–sulfonyl radical cross couplings. The developed photoredox catalysis of Eosin Y demonstrates a regioselective 1,4-diradical addition strategy, opening up a new possibility of diradical functionalization of conjugate systems.
