Photocatalytic hydrogenation of azobenzene to hydrazobenzene on cadmium sulfide under visible light irradiation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Visible-light irradiation (λ < 600 nm) of commercially-available CdS in alcohol successfully promotes hydrogenation of azobenzene to hydrazobenzene with more than 95% selectivity. This is promoted by strong adsorption of azobenzene to the photoformed zerovalent Cd species adjacent to the surface S vacancies on CdS; this leads to efficient reduction to hydrazobenzene.
