Pleased to announce our ChemBioChem manuscript has been accepted, and it's already on-line
So happy to share we have our last review at ChemBioChem accepted. It is entitled "TiO2‐based Photocatalysis at the Interface with Biology and Biomedicine" and authored by Dr. María Tomás Gamasa and Prof. José L. Mascareñas.
Abstract: The conversion of sunlight into chemical energy using the photosynthetic
machinery is at the hearth of Nature and Life. Scientists have also
learned to use the energy of light to promote a great variety of
chemical reactions, most of them based on redox processes involving
electron transfer steps. Indeed, the area of photoredox catalysis has
recently emerged as one of the hottest fields in synthetic chemistry.
Many of the photoredox reactions so far discovered take place in
homogeneous phases, and rely on the use of soluble photoresponsive
catalysts. However, along recent years, there have been also many
advances in the area of heterogeneous photocatalysis, most of which are
based on the use of semiconductor materials like TiO2 as key
photocatalytic system. These technologies have found different
applications, especially in the field of sustainable chemistry and
therapy. In this manuscript we review some of these applications, and
the potential of TiO2‐based photocatalysts in biology and biomedicine.
