The use of 2,4,6-triphenylpyrylium tetrafluoroborate (TPT) as catalyst allows a regiocontrolled construction of cyclic ethers and lactones via visible-light-induced intramolecular C-O bond formation. This approach provides valuable five- and six-membered cyclic ethers and lactones with a unified protocol.
