    The direct decarboxylative azidation of cyclic α-amino acids has been achieved via visible light-mediated organo-photoredox catalysis. This synthetic strategy allows the simple preparation of azide-contaning building blocks and has been used in the selective modification of N-terminal proline residues of two di-peptides.
