The Attack of the Photocatalytic Microrobots!

The attack of the photocatalytic microrobots! We have intended to write a bit about visible-light decomposition of contaminants for a while... so what better entry into the topic than a story about self-propelled autonomous microrobots that can swim through mazes to...

Using Multiphoton Excitation To Generate Potent Photooxidants

A New Potent Photooxidant Pushing the limits of LED driven visible-light photocatalysis requires some creative thinking to get more redox potential out of the tools that are readily available to us.  A recent report by Wickens and coworkers demonstrates a unique...

Multi-Photon Approaches to Synthetic Photochemistry

Multi-photon approaches to synthetic photochemistry expand the potential pathways to create more efficient and potentially safer reaction conditions. Wenger and coworkers recently published a fascinating in-depth review on multi-photon excitation in photoredox...

Red Light Applications in Photochemistry

Near-Infrared (NIR) Light Gaining Interest For most of the previous century, photochemistry invoked images of high-powered mercury lamps, intense UV light and classical reactions such as [2+2]-cycloadditions, cyclizations and radical rearrangements (Ref 1). This...
