Abstract:

The “green” character of a series of reaction carried out under visible light photocatalysis has been evaluated by calculating the Process Mass Intensity (PMI) and by means of the EATOS software. The indexes obtained were likewise calculated for the thermal version of the same reactions for the sake of comparison. The role of solvents, of the photocatalyst used and of the irradiation apparatus are discussed.
