Oriented Internal Electrostatic Fields Cooperatively Promote Ground- and Excited-State Reactivity: A Case Study in Photochemical CO2 Capture
Oriented electrostatic fields can exert catalytic effects upon both the kinetics and the thermodynamics of chemical reactions; however, the vast majority of studies thus far have focused upon ground-state chemistry and rarely consider any more than a single class of reaction. In the present study, we first use density functional theory (DFT) calculations to clarify the mechanism of CO2 storage via photochemical carboxylation of o-alkylphenyl ketones, originally proposed by Murakami et al. (J....[Show more]
