photodecarbonylation

Photoinduced extrusion of carbon monoxide (CO).
Notes:
  1. Typical example is the @[email protected], in which, after production of the diradical upon photoinduced α-cleavage, CO is eliminated. This reaction has been widely exploited for the production of radicals in crystals, as well as for the synthesis of cyclic compounds.
