Organocatalytic photoreduction of Zn(II) to zinc metal

Author affiliations


The photoreduction of Zn(II) to Zn metal catalyzed by 8-hydroxyquinoline derivatives is reported. Structure–activity relationships, ideal reaction conditions, and the reaction kinetics are described and a mechanism involving an in situ formed quinolate complex is portrayed.
