Radical reactions of alkyl halides, initiated by photolysis in the presence of decacarbonyldimanganese, can be performed in biphasic media. Reactions in the presence of aqueous sodium hydroxide together with a phase-transfer catalyst result in the efficient removal of manganese halide by-products and also lead to the regeneration of decacarbonyldimanganese. A range of efficient radical couplings, cyclisations and intermolecular addition reactions were performed under these conditions. This included the development of a new tandem radical addition-ionic cyclisation sequence that was employed in a short approach to (±)-coronamic acid.
