Abstract

Employment of simple transition metal (TM = Co, Fe, Cu, Pd, Pt, Au)-based photocatalyst (PC) has led to the dramatic acceleration of known TM-catalyzed reactions, as well as to the discovery of unprecedented chemical transformations. Compared to the conventional cooperative/dual photocatalysis (type B), this new class of unconventional PCs operates via a single photoexcitation/catalytic cycle, where the TM complex plays a "double duty" role by harvesting light and catalyzing the chemical transformation. Also, these TM photocatalysts participate in the bond-forming/breaking event in the transformation via a substrate-TM interaction, an aspect that is uncommon for conventional photocatalysis (type A). This tutorial review highlights the recent advances in this emerging area.
