A mild method for the conversion of alkyl iodides to alcohols was developed. The transformation was promoted by tris(trimethylsilyl)silane/O2 and accelerated by photoredox catalysis under visible light irradiation conditions. Various alkyl iodides, including primary, secondary and tertiary iodides, can be smoothly converted to the corresponding alcohols in 38%~99% yields.

Key words: tris(trimethylsilyl)silane, photoredox catalysis, carbon radical, alkyl iodide, alcohol
