Metal-free generation of hydroxyl radicals by benzoates-mediated decomposition of peroxides

Abstract

A type of metal-free organic photo-Fenton-like reactions are developed, which are fulfilled by the combination of UV with benzoates and peroxides. The findings here not only provide a novel •OH production pathway, but also shed new light on accurate quantification, better use or prevention of •OH in many scenarios.
