Title : Visible light mediated photoredox catalysis for C-O bond manipulation


Application of visible light catalysis has revolutionized the field of organic synthesis by providing much efficient and greener alternatives to many important organic transformations. Visible light mediated reactions require a photocatalyst that absorbs the visible light and engage it in the single electron transfer (SET) or energy transfer process with the substrates. In this presentation we will be demonstrating our recent work on C-O bond breaking and C-O bond making by using visible light photocatalysis and their application in the field of natural product synthesis, carbohydrates and amino acids.

Audience take-away:

  • Application of visible light mediated photocatalysis and scaling-up for industrial use.
  • To utilize visible light photocatalysis for greener and efficient synthesis of biomolecules.
  • Importance of visible light photocatalysis and its application in bond manipulations.
  • Yes, this provide a practical solution to a problem that could simplify or make a designer’s job more efficient.
  • Yes, it improves the accuracy of a design, or provide new information to assist in a design problem.


Samuzal Bhuyan studied Chemistry in Sikkim University and received MSc in Chemistry in the year of 2014. Same year he joined MPhil course in Organic Synthesis, at Sikkim University and received MPhil degree in 2016. He has submitted his PhD thesis to Sikkim University during 2022 in Diversity Oriented Synthesis under broad subject area of Synthetic Organic Chemistry. He basically works on stereoselective synthesis and Diversity oriented synthesis from carbohydrate. He also works on photoredox catalysis and published 12 papers in research articles in SCI(E) journals in his early research carrier.
