Using Green Light to Synthesize Organic Compounds

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
YOKOHAMA, Japan, Sept. 23, 2019 — A team from Yokohama National University has developed oxygen heterocycles using green light as a photocatalyst. Their sustainable approach to developing these compounds could help organic chemists develop better drugs. Oxygen heterocycles are ring structures consisting of atoms from two or more elements. They have a variety of uses, including in medications to treat cancer and heart failure. According to professor Kiyoshi Honda, “[Our] goal was to develop cost-effective and milder synthetic routes to create oxygen heterocycles.” The green-light-driven production of...Read full article
