A new photochemical reduction of nitroaromatics mediated by p-toluenethiol and PCy3 under solvent-free, metal-free, and mild conditions is reported for the first time. This reaction has shown good generalities, and amine derivatives with different substituents and substitution patterns can be obtained in good yields. Therefore, this reduction method represents a potentially valuable new strategy for the efficient synthesis of amine compounds.

Key words: nitroaromatics, reduction, photochemistry, aromatic amines
