The use of copper catalysis with visible light photoredox catalysis in a cooperative fashion has recently emerged as a versatile means of developing new C-C bond forming reactions. In this work, dual copper and photoredox catalysis is exploited to effect C(sp2)-C(sp3) cross-couplings between aryl boronic acids and benzyl bromides.
