Some recent works

  • Visible light is non-toxic and inexhaustible source of energy. We are working on developments of new synthetic methods and replacement of the harsh UV photochemical and toxic Tin catalyzed radical processes with this emerging visible light photoredox catalysis. Photocatalysts such as Ru(bpy)3Cl2 and Ir(ppy)3 solve the problem of inability of organic compounds to absorb visible light and trigger the reaction by single electron transfer mechanism.
