Spectroscopic and Computational Elucidation of Transition Metal Photoredox Mechanisms

Project description

Elucidating the mechanisms of transition metal photoredox reactions

Photoredox catalysis – a branch of catalysis that harnesses light to accelerate a chemical reaction via single-electron transfer events – provides an efficient route to the construction of new bonds. Despite the high number and growing complexity of bond transformations, few spectroscopic and computational studies have been carried out on photoredox mechanisms. The EU-funded PhotoRedOx project plans to conduct high-level spectroscopy studies involving photon energies spanning 10 orders of magnitude and 15 orders of magnitude for observation time of molecular events. Experimental data will guide the design of ligand molecules so that they enhance their reactivity with a targeted bond.
