The ubiquity of amines in pharmaceutical, agrochemical and advanced materials has incentivised modern synthetic chemists to develop novel and innovative methods for their synthesis and functionalisation. Specifically, the direct alpha-C-H functionalisation of aliphatic amines represents one such transformation which demands further development and improvement of current methodology. Visible-light mediated catalysis has presented a powerful platform to facilitate this transformation, with several pathways established to achieve the alpha-functionalisation of amines. This thesis is an exploration of the visible-light mediated functionalisation of aliphatic amines. Specifically, it explores t..
