Photochemistry of earth-abundant metals

A recurring theme for many of our articles over the last few months is that there just isn’t enough iridium or ruthenium in the earth’s crust to do all of the photochemistry that we would like to perform at scale. Due to cost and the scarcity of these metals, the...

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...
