Graphical Abstract:


The implementation of heterogeneous photo-nanocatalysts in organic syntheses has been investigated greatly in the last decade as a result of the increasing demand to achieve the organic reactions via the use of green approaches and through the availability of visible light source. Herein, the presented results describe the basic concepts and state-of-the-art of fundamental insight into key features that influence the catalytic performance in organic reactions to investigate and optimize a broad range of catalyzed organic transformations, that benefit the researchers in academia and chemical industry fields.

Keywords: Photocatalysis, photo-nanocatalysts, organic synthesis, influence parameters, photocatalytic processes, green chemistry.
