BP Sustainability Lecture 2021 (Webinar)

Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals combine many of the desirable properties of homogeneous photocatalysts with those of heterogeneous photocatalysts to access new reactivities and selectivities that impact organic synthesis and solar energy conversion. This talk examines the use of nanocrystals in an important photochemical reaction, [2+2] photocycloaddition to produce previously inaccessible cyclobutane structures from a variety of alkenes, and in multi-electron reduction reactions, most notably the conversion of CO2 to CO in pure water with record-breaking efficiency.
