Sprache des Tagungstitel:
Dioxygen activation and catalytic oxygen atom transfer processes are of paramount interest for green and selective transformations of substrate molecules in modern organic synthesis, environmentally benign processes and pharmaceutical fine chemical production.Nature has optimized various strategies to achieve extremely efficient enantioselective conversions of bioactive molecules. At the same time, any undesired release of reactive oxygen species causing uncontrolled side reactions or catalyst degradation is minimized.
In order to mimic some of these features with synthetic or hybrid catalyst systems, various light-driven strategies may be successfully followed:
1)Photochemical redox cofactor recycling and coupling to
native or engineered enzyme catalysts.
2)Bio-inspired oxidoreductase mimetics for artificial
enzyme catalysis controlled and driven by light.
This contribution will mainly focus on the latter strategy, which has been developed in the author´s group.
