Chemical Photocatalysis

Edited by: Burkhard König

Visible light is an abundant source of energy. While the conversion of light energy into electrical energy (photovoltaics) is highly developed and commercialized, the use of visible light in chemical synthesis is far less explored. Chemical photocatalysts that mimic principles of biological photosynthesis utilize visible light to drive endothermic or kinetically hindered reactions.

  • 2nd updated edition
  • Treats cutting-edge topics: flavin photocatalysis, enantioselective photocatalysis, organic and inorganic semiconductors, photohydrogenation, and analytical methods with time-resolved spectroscopy
  • Unique focus on visible light
