Photo- and thermo-chromism of a ruthenium(II) complex and viologen-containing polymer film
A ruthenium(II) complex and a viologen-containing partially quaternized poly(1-vinylimidazole) film demonstrates both photochromism and thermochromism as a result of photosensitized and
Coordination Photochemistry: Photoinduced Electron Transfer and Redox Photocatalysis
Although industrial applications of photochemistry are rather limited, the field of inorganic photochemistry has expanded enormously in the past fifteen years. Classical photochemistry was devoted to
Visible light photocatalysis of [2+2] styrene cycloadditions by energy transfer.
In contrast to previous reports of visible light photoredox catalysis, the mechanism of this process involves photosensitization by energy transfer and not electron transfer.
