Synthetic Organic Photochemistry

Historically, synthetic organic photochemistry has provided an extremely powerful method for the conversion of simple substrates into often complex products. In a modern context, as organic photochemistry uses no reagents or catalysts, it is one of the key technologies for clean synthesis. Over the last 10 years or so the Booker-Milburn group has investigated a wide range of photochemical transformations, often with serendipitous discoveries providing some of the most interesting and useful results.
