Recent developments in preparative photocatalysis have reshaped synthetic strategies and now represent an integral part of current organic chemistry. Due to their favourable electrochemical and photophysical properties, the nowadays most frequently used photocatalysts are based on precious Ru- and Ir-polypyridyl complexes. Apart from that, organic catalysts such as the acridinium salts are now commonly employed to complement transition metals to provide potentially sustainable strategies amenable to large-scale synthesis. In this feature article, the design, synthesis and application of aminoacridinium photoredox catalysts as well as their exceptionally broad range of redox properties are highlighted. Due to their modularity, this burgeoning class of organophotocatalysts is anticipated to contribute significantly to synthetic methodology development and the translation to a wide range of innovative implementations.
