A Mn-catalyzed N-F bond activation enables a visible-light-promoted generation of amidyl radicals from N-fluorosulfonamides. In the presence of a cheap silane, (MeO)3SiH as hydrogen-atom donor and F-atom acceptor, intra- and intermolecular hydroaminations of alkenes, two-component carboamination of alkenes, and even three-component carboamination of alkenes can be realized.
