A visible-light-induced radical gem-iodoallylation of CF3CHN2 was developed under mild conditions, delivering a variety of α-CF3-substituted homoallylic iodide compounds in moderate to excellent yields. The transformation features broad substrate scope, good functional group compatibility, and operational simplicity. The described protocol provides a convenient and attractive tool to apply CF3CHN2 as CF3-introduction reagent in radical synthetic chemistry.
