Abstract

In the new millennium the well-established paradigms of organic photochemistry have come alive as the basis for a wide range of synthetic methodologies that take advantage of the enhanced redox properties of excited states. While many strategies have been developed using rare, expensive and non-reusable catalysts, the road forward should include catalysts based on more abundant elements and reusable materials. This green road leads to the exploration of heterogeneous systems that can be eventually adapted for flow photocatalysis, and also adopted for the solution of environmental problems such as water treatment and fuel generation using solar radiation. If heterogeneous photocatalysis can play a role in supplying solutions to drug synthesis, energy and potable water supplies, then photochemistry will have an unprecedented societal impact.

Keywords: heterogeneous catalysis; ICPOC-24; photochemistry; photoredox catalysis
