Our cooperative work with the Guo group on radical observation published in J. Am. Chem. Soc.

Congratulations to Jianqing Qi and Weiqun Suo on the publication of research on photocatalysis in J. Am. Chem. Soc. (doi:10.1021/jacs.3c14471)!

In this study, we collaborated with Prof. Xingwei Guo’s research team to directly observe a photocatalytic reaction known as the Giese reaction using the innovative U-PSD time-resolved EPR. For the first time, all radical and radical ion species involved in the catalytic cycle were clearly observed and identified. This groundbreaking achievement serves as a proof-of-concept demonstrating the potential of U-PSD TREPR as a powerful tool for radical chemists.
