Reduction of nitroaromatic compounds on supported gold nanoparticles by visible and ultraviolet light
Zhu, Huaiyong, Ke, Xuebin, Yang, Xuzhuang, Sarina, Sarina, & Liu, Hongwei (2010) Reduction of nitroaromatic compounds on supported gold nanoparticles by visible and ultraviolet light. Angewandte Chemie (International Edition), 49, pp. 9657-9661.
Shedding light: Nitroaromatic compounds on gold nanoparticles (3 wt %) supported on ZrO2 can be reduced directly to the corresponding azo compounds when illuminated with visible light or ultraviolet light at 40 °C (see picture). The process occurs with high selectivity and at ambient temperature and pressure, and enables the selection of intermediates that are unstable in thermal reactions.
