Talented Researcher Support Program – GenT Plan              


PHOTON UPCONVERSION REDOX CATALYSIS (PURECAT)

We have initiated an original and innovative research program to further the knowledge of the generation of reactive intermediate species through this novel combination of Vis-to-UV upconversion and a SET-initiated process and its subsequent application in Chemistry. Such pathways will develop a sustainable reaction methodology to expand the current scope of chemical transformations using visible light and organic (metal-free) dyes.

  • The project actually requires a truly multidisciplinary and integrated approach which includes catalytic chemistry, photochemistry and photophysics, chemical functionalization, high-pressure gas handling, reactor technology, and product and trace analysis.
  • Students with great initiative and motivation at whatever stage who are interested in these topics, please just email to us in order to learn more about grants/contracts opportunities in our research group.

Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to cordially ask you to contribute to this Special Issue on “Photochemical Reactions in Organic Synthesis” that will be published in the open access journal Molecules, with an impact factor in 2019 of 3.267. Despite the extensive literature on applications of photochemical processes to organic synthesis, there is great interest in the development of more innovative and efficient synthetic methodologies to obtain new chemical entities. This Special Issue will accept original research papers and high-quality reviews in the fields of organic photochemistry, photoredox catalysis and synthetic applications. The topic of this Special Issue will be mainly (but not only) focused on new synthetic approaches using visible light as energy source, with special emphasis in elucidating the diverse mechanistic aspects of these processes.
