A fixed-bed photoreactor using conjugated nanoporous polymer-coated glass fibers for visible light-promoted continuous photoredox reactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Here, we report on a fixed-bed photoreactor containing conjugated nanoporous polymer-coated glass fibers for visible light-promoted, heterogeneous photoredox reactions in a continuous flow system. A thin film of nanoporous polybenzothiadiazole with a thickness of ca. 80 nm was fabricated directly on the glass fiber with an effective catalyst content of ca. 3.2 wt%. The photocatalytic dehalogenation reaction of α-bromoacetophenones and the enantioselective α-alkylation of aldehydes were carried out in the fixed-bed photoreactor with comparable efficiencies to the state-of-art transition metal-based photocatalysts.
