The study was published in the journal Angewandte Chemie International Edition. The use of light to initiate reactions is one of the most promising method for reducing the carbon footprint of chemistry. Scientists from Strasbourg and Toulouse have developed luminescent copper complexes stabilized by a ligand, allowing them to optimize their properties by forming a molecular corbeille.
These complexes have the potential to replace current photocatalysers based on noble metals.
