The feasibility of efficient photocatalytic monofluorination of unactivated C(sp3)–H bonds of aliphatic amines, ketones, and alcohols in the presence of decatungstate anion and N-fluorobenzenesulfimide has been demonstrated. The presence of water facilitates not only a greater yield of the corresponding fluorine derivatives but also may affect the selectivity of these reactions. Cyclic voltammetry was used to show that one of the factors accounting for the promoting effect of water is an increase in the absolute values of the redox potentials for the oxidation of two- and one-electron-reduced forms of the decatungstate anion.
