In the past five years, visible-light mediated photoredox catalysis has been emerging as one of the fastest growing fields in organic chemistry because of its low cost, easy availability and environmental benignness. This review intends to summarize recent research progress in novel methodology development and application in organic synthesis, and is organized in terms of key reactive intermediates.
