Visible-light- and bromoacetic acid-promoted α,α-dibromination was presented in a sustainable manner, which enables the formation of the brominated quaternary carbon precursor in minutes. The developed method is well suited for α-heterocyclic carbonyl compounds, which are less issued before. Meanwhile, this method offers the potentiality for stepwise or one-pot construction of quaternary carbon centers.
