Abstract

Electrophilic oxygen species photocatalytically derived from water molecules can selectively react with the aromatic ring of both benzene and its derivatives to produce the corresponding phenols and hydrogen over platinum-loaded titanium oxide when illuminated with light of appropriate wavelength in the absence of oxygen.
