Impact/Purpose:

Aldehydes and amines are used for the synthesis of fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and agricultural chemicals. Noble metal catalysts are needed for transformations required in the synthesis of these chemicals. In recent times, efforts are being made to develop a wide variety of photocatalysts that can catalyze these transformations. However, researchers have yet to produce a highly efficient photocatalyst for these reactions. This article reports photocatalytic oxidation of aromatic amines using MnO2@g-C3N4. This study is relevant to chemists and other researchers interested in green chemistry.

Description:

An efficient and direct oxidation of aromatic amines to aromatic azo-compounds has been achieved using a MnO2@g-C3N4 catalyst under visible light as a source of energy at room temperature
