Photochemical reactions play a key role in organic synthesis. Many compounds or compound families are only or more easily accessible with these reactions. They are easily optimized for large scale transformations or for industrial processes. Photocycloadditions, photochemically induced electrocyclic or radical reactions are thus applied in fine chemistry. More recently, photoredox catalytic reactions with visible light are intensively investigated. Photooxygenations involving singlet oxygen are highly selective. They are carried out under mild conditions, also at the industrial scale.
