Ring closure reactions are of fundamental importance in organic chemistry due to the broad occurrence of cyclic structural elements both in natural products and in synthetic drugs. Besides many valuable thermal methods, photochemical ring closure reactions gained increasing importance in recent years. Among the various photochemical cyclization reactions, the Norrish–Yang reaction [1] turned out to be particularly versatile.
