The first UV-light-initiated cyclization of aryl aldehydes or aryl ketones with alkynes has been developed for the preparation of indenones. This reaction could proceed smoothly under UV-light with O2 as an oxidant and photocatalyst-free condition, which features high efficiency, high atom economy, easily available starting materials, environmental friendliness, and tolerance to broad functional groups.

Key words: UV-light, cyclization, photocatalyst-free, indenones
