Abstract

Solar irradiation provides critical energy to conduct chemical reactions. Many light-sensitive materials, such as semiconductors, guide photoredox-induced chemical pathways to tailor favored chemical conversions. Polymer synthesis by light is popular, however mainly addressed by conducting radical-based polymerization strategies. Oxidative photopolymerization is an advanced method to form functional polymers that are otherwise formed through complicated reactions. Herein, infant-stage oxidative photopolymerization will be introduced with examples in the field.
