Structure–Property Relationships for Tailoring Phenoxazines as Reducing Photoredox Catalysts

Abstract: Through the study of structure–property relationships using a combination of experimental and computational analyses, a number of phenoxazine derivatives have been developed as visible light absorbing, organic photoredox catalysts (PCs) with excited state reduction potentials rivaling those of highly reducing transition metal PCs. Time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) computational modeling of the photoexcitation of…
