3-Trifluoromethylindoline-2-one derivatives were prepared in a visible-light photocatalytic transformation of acrylamides. The arylation-cyclization sequence was initiated by light-induced aryl radical generation from aryldiazonium salts with the utilization of erythrosine B as an organic photocatalyst.
