The 21 Must-Read Photochemistry Papers of 2021

At HepatoChem, we had a big year in 2021.  We started shipping our new photoreactor the Lucent360™, added members to our team, moved into a new lab space and built out a new manufacturing facility.  The year 2022 promises even more new products, more exciting photochemistry, and hopefully more fun posts in our blog. 

Last year at this time, while looking ahead towards a long, cold, COVID-filled winter, we decided to look back at the year 2020 with a fun little piece listing our favorite papers of the year.  Like in the movie Groundhog Day, little did we all know then that 2020 would just seem to repeat itself.  So, let’s have some fun and do it again!  Keep reading for our favorite 21 photoredox papers from 2021, and then send us your favorites on twitter (@EvoluChem) or at info@hepatochem.

Utilizing the Lucent360 from screen to scale

A few weeks ago, we discussed the history of the Lucent360™, our new photoreactor for light and temperatures control for screen to scale, in both batch and flow. This month, we want to share a series of experiments for a photocatalyzed-Arbuzov reaction that demonstrate the value of the Lucent360™ for studying a photochemical reaction. There is no shortage of possibilities for how to best study a photochemical reaction. Having the tools available to design the best experiment is key. Read on for a step by step study taking a reaction from screen to scale utilizing the unique features of the Lucent360™.
