Expanding the Spectrum of Light-Driven Peroxygenase Reactions

Published on 2019-01-10T20:42:43Z (GMT) by
Peroxygenases require a controlled supply of H<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2</sub> to operate efficiently. Here, we propose a photocatalytic system for the reductive activation of ambient O<sub>2</sub> to produce H<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2</sub> which uses the energy provided by visible light more efficiently based on the combination of wavelength-complementary photosensitizers. This approach was coupled to an enzymatic system to make formate available as a sacrificial electron donor. The scope and current limitations of this approach are reported and discussed.
