Why not deploy photocatalysts developed for solar chemical technologies for green organic synthesis?

Many semiconductors or photoelectrodes have been developed for solar fuel synthesis and we are interested in used those heterogenous, hybrid or semi-artificial catalysts for organic photocatalysis. We are particularly interested in replacing expensive and toxic photocatalysts currently being used or develop by truly scalable, inexpensive and non-toxic alternatives. The goal is to develop light-driven, high-yield organic transformations and establish a sustainable organic and pharmaceuticals industry.
