A direct visible light-induced generation of a hybrid aryl Pd-radical species from aryl iodide and Pd(0) is reported to enable an unprecedented (for hybrid Pd-radical species) hydrogen atom-transfer event. This approach allowed for efficient desaturation of readily available silyl ethers into synthetically valuable silyl enols. Moreover, this oxidation reaction proceeds at room temperature without the aid of exogenous photosensitizers or oxidants.
