The scope, applications, and understanding of photoinduced, copper-catalysis have advanced considerably in recent times. Many of these transformations exploit the distinctive properties of photoactive copper species to establish original synthetic methodology and reveal novel reactivity. In this regard, the bifunctionality of copper photocatalysts has often allowed these species to direct and influence synthetic processes in new, interesting, and exciting ways. This article summarizes recent advances in the development of copper photoredox catalysts and provides an overview of the emerging applications of these, and related systems, in organic synthesis.
