Single electron reduction is more challenging for sulfamoyl chlorides than sulfonyl chlorides. However, sulfamoyl and sulfonyl chlorides can be easily activated by Cl-atom abstraction by a silyl radical with similar rates. This latter mode of activation was therefore selected to access aliphatic sulfonamides, applying a single-step hydrosulfamoylation using inexpensive olefins, tris(trimethylsilyl)silane, and photocatalyst Eosin Y. This late-stage functionalization protocol generates molecules as complex as sulfonamide-containing cyclobutyl-spirooxindoles for direct use in medicinal chemistry.
