Photocatalytic α-functionalization of amines provides a mild and atom-economical means to synthesize α-branched amines. Prior examples featured symmetrical or electronically biased substrates. Here we report a controllable α-functionalization of amines in which regioselectivity can be tuned with minor changes to the reaction conditions.
