Abstract (Summary)

The well-established principles of organic photochemistry, offer chemists the fundamental understanding and tools for studying light induced chemical transformations. Employing visible light for photocatalysis, one can design and develop benign routes for the synthesis of new organic materials. In our present investigation, we have developed novel N-N bond based compounds for visible light mediated phototransformations. We have presented synthesis for targeting achiral/chiral N-N bond based compounds and their study for various light driven applications. To name a few applications, these compounds have shown to react smoothly under visible light, metal-free conditions for classical photoreactions, chloromethylation, asymmetric photocyclization and photopolymerization. A diverse range of compounds has shown to react smoothly to afford products in high yields.

The scope of this methodology has been evaluated for both intermolecular and intramolecular reactions. Our work benefits from the ability of these compounds to undergo desired phototransformation in both solution and in crystalline media. We have provided photochemical and photophysical details that corroborates our experimental findings and highlights the role of excited state reactivity of the novel N-N bond based compounds. This thesis will be an effort to make chemists familiarize with potential of these compounds in light induced reactions.
