A radical-mediated decarboxylative C(sp3)-N cross-coupling of diacyl peroxides with nitrogen nucleophiles, including indazoles, triazoles, indoles, and anilines provides a broad range of alkylated products. The primary and secondary alkyl radicals derived from corresponding diacyl peroxides were generated by copper catalysis or by merging copper catalysis and photoredox catalysis, respectively.
