The project aims to develop new approaches for investigation of reaction mechanisms in photocatalytic reactions. As a PhD Candidate you will learn and then improve our strategies to trap reaction intermediates in photocatalytic reactions by mass spectrometry. The initial studies will concern C-H activation and oxidation reactions mediated by metal complexes as photocatalysts. Understanding of key reaction steps and identification of reaction intermediates will be a guide towards developing of improved photocatalysts. The project will run within the frame NWO START-UP Grant of Prof. Roithova. For relevant literature see: Acc. Chem. Res. 2016, 49, 223; J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2017, 139, 2757; Phys. Chem. Chem.
