Application of visible light catalysis has revolutionized the field of organic synthesis by providing much efficient and greener alternatives to many important organic transformations. Visible light mediated reactions require a photocatalyst that absorbs the visible light and engage it in the single electron transfer (SET) or energy transfer process with the substrates. In this presentation we will be demonstrating our recent work on C-O bond breaking and C-O bond making by using visible light photocatalysis and their application in the field of natural product synthesis, carbohydrates and amino acids.
