Studies have been conducted to explore single electron transfer (SET) induced photoaddition reactions of phthalimides with the α-silyl-n-electron donors (EtOCH2TMS, n-PrSCH2TMS and Et2NCH2TMS). Photoadditions of EtOCH TMS, n-PrSCH2TMS and Et2NCH2TMS to phthalimides in CH3CN or CH3OH occur in moderate to high yields to produce 3-substituted phthalimidines. The primary photoadducts undergo dehydration (or desilanolation) to generate 3-alkylidenylphthalimidine derivatives by pathways which are accelerated by acid impurity. Mechanisms for these photoadditions involving SET from α-silyl-n-electron donors to excited phthalimides followed by selective desilylation of the intermediate cation redicals and radical coupling are proposed.
