PC7. Applications of Photochemistry: Photoredox Catalysis in Organic Chemistry

 One of the biggest areas of research and development involving photoredox catalysis has been in organic chemistry.  Much of the focus in this area has been on taking existing reactions and developing new methodologies that make them more controlled, more efficient, or faster.
