The Wolff rearrangement is one of the best methods for chain homologation. However, it still suffers from many drawbacks with respect to its practical execution in the laboratory. We wish to demonstrate the use of commercial LED lamps as a sustainable alternative for the classic experimental protocols typically used for Wolff rearrangements. (AU)
