A one-step chlorosulfonylation of acrylamides via a photocatalytic redox process is described. This reaction provides α-chlorosulfonylamides with a quaternary center with high regioselectivity via radical process. It is amenable to a broad range of substrates and the products are obtained in moderate to good yields.
