Characterization of a Non-aggregating Silicon(IV) Phthalocyanine in Aqueous Solution: Toward Red-light-driven Photocatalysis based on Earth-abundant Materials
Sprache des Titels:
A robust silicon-based sensitizer with excellent properties
for artificial photosynthesis and solar driven photoredox
chemistry in water has been characterized. Photophysical and photochemical characterization of a novel cationic
silicon phthalocyanine with excellent water solubility properties is reported. The long-term stable red-light responsive compound shows very attractive features as a sensitizer for reductive and oxidative quenching processes to trigger photocatalytic substrate conversion in aqueous solution.
