Photocatalysis as a tool for synthetic organic chemistry

Project description

Young researchers meet the challenges of photocatalysis

Photocatalysis harnesses the energy of light to accelerate a chemical reaction. It is a green chemistry alternative as it reduces the use or generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture and application of chemical products. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the PhotoReAct project will offer 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) the opportunity to undertake research in the field and overcome current limitations that prevent the applicability and scalability of photochemical transformations. Young researchers will focus on the rational design of photocatalysts, new photocatalytic methodologies, improved reactor technologies and the industrial implementation of photocatalytic transformations. All ESRs will complete secondments at an industrial partner and at an institute other than their host to broaden their knowledge and expertise in preparation for entering the job market.
