Light Power vs Irradiance

Although the total power of LED light is important, it is essential to estimate the amount of light that actually goes on the sample. If the light is spread over a large area the density of light (irradiance) on sample will be little. Therefore we designed the EvoluChemTM LEDs to focus the light toward the samples. They have light beam angle of  25° which allows to obtain better light efficiency than the Kessil light (40°).

With a more focused beam the Evoluchem LED 18W average irradiance is 50% higher than a 34W Kessil light.

Experimental Details:
In duplicate in a 4-ml vial equipped with a teflon septa and 2x7 mm stir bar, were weighed 4-bromoacetophenone (4.95 mg, 25 µmol) and potassium benzyltrifluoroborate (4.50 mg, 25 µmol, 1 equiv.). To this vial was added a 1.0 ml solution in DMA containing NiCl2-dme (1.1 mg, 5 µmol, 20 mol %), dtbbpy (1.3 mg, 5 µmol, 20 mol %) and Ir(dF-CF3-ppy)2(dtbpy) (1.12 mg, 1 µmol, 4 mol %) followed by addition of 2,6-lutidine (17.5 µl, 150 µmol, 6 equiv.) . The solution was sparged with nitrogen via submerged needle for 5 minutes and vial was placed in EvoluChem photoreactor with blue Kessil 34W LED or with a EvoluChem LED 18W 450-455 nm. Reaction time course was monitored at 0, 5, 15, 45, 120, 240, and 360 minutes.  Molander_Lutidine
