Photocatalysis enables the construction of 3-acyl-4-arylcoumarins in good yields from simple aldehydes and ynoates in the presence of inexpensive 2-tBu-anthraquinone as catalyst. The reaction proceeds through generation of an acyl radical intermediate, that reacts with ynoate, and then cyclization.
