Photocatalysis and photochemistry in organic synthesis

Prof. Timothy Noël, University of Amsterdam
Prof. Bartholomäus (Bart) Pieber, Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA)

This thematic issue in the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry is dedicated to the exciting field of photocatalysis and photochemistry in synthetic organic chemistry. Our primary focus is to showcase the diverse applications of light as powerful mediator for the synthesis of organic compounds. We invite contributions that cover both homogeneous and heterogeneous photoreactions, offering a comprehensive view of this rapidly evolving field. We also encourage submissions that delve into mechanistic studies, exploring the underlying processes that govern light-activated reactions. Additionally, we welcome research articles and review papers on the development of innovative synthetic routes and methods employing photochemistry. We eagerly anticipate submissions that delve into the integration of light activation into flow chemistry platforms, enabling efficient and sustainable organic synthesis.

In essence, this thematic issue seeks to provide a platform for researchers to disseminate original findings and insights that advance our understanding and utilization of photocatalysis and photochemistry in the context of organic synthesis. Contributions from both experimental and theoretical perspectives are highly encouraged as to promote a holistic approach to this vibrant field. We look forward to receiving your valuable contributions to this timely and exciting thematic issue.

Submission deadline: October 15, 2024
