Photocatalysis supported by non-innocent ligands

Applications accepted all year round
Photocatalysis allows light energy to be harnessed to drive catalytic reactions via single-electron transfer. However, many redox-catalytic processes, including those that involve oxygen atom transfer, require the transfer of more than one electron.1.
Polyoxothiometalates: The Primordial Answer to CO2 Mitigation? (FIELDENJ1U19SF)

Sulfurous oceanic hydrothermal vents containing transition metals are thought to have played a key role in converting CO2 into the chemical building blocks of life.(i) Therefore, these primordial metallo-sulfur soups likely contained superb pre-biotic molecular catalysts for CO2 and other small molecule activations, of potentially great value as we battle anthropogenic climate change.
