We describe the use of visible light in conjunction with an organic dye for the synthesis of phosphoramidates. Cross dehydrogenative coupling reactions between phosphites and amines are reported using organic dyes and light as catalysts for the first time. It is not only a novel application of organic dyes but also fulfils the requirement of sustainability and green chemistry avoiding the use of chromatographic purification techniques. The product was simply isolated from the reaction mixture via an acid-base work-up procedure, rendering the pure product in good yields.
