Herein we disclose a deoxyfluorination of alcohols with an electrophilic fluorine source via visible-light photoredox catalysis. This radical-mediated C–F coupling is capable of fluorinating secondary and tertiary alcohols efficiently, complementing previously reported nucleophilic deoxyfluorination protocols.
