Abstract

A supramolecular assembly containing two light harvesting fragments [Ru(tpy)2]2+ and one catalytic unit [Ru(tpy)(bpy)Cl]+ was synthesized in a facile manner in 90% yield, and exhibited high photocatalytic product-selectivity compared with the corresponding bimolecular system in the light-driven oxidation of alcohols using [Co(NH3)5Cl]Cl2 as a sacrificial oxidant in water at room temperature.
