Abstract

An operationally simple continuous flow generator of ‘dark’ singlet oxygen has been developed. The singlet oxygen was efficiently reacted with several chemical traps to give the corresponding oxygenated products in high yields. The developed ‘dark’ singlet oxygen generator has been successfully applied in the synthesis of the antimalarial drug artemisinin.
