Abstract

Photooxygenation of p-xylene by oxygen occurs efficiently under photoirradiation of 9-mesityl-2,7,10-trimethylacridinium ion (Me 2Acr+-Mes) to yield p-tolualdehyde and hydrogen peroxide, which is initiated via photoinduced electron transfer of Me2Acr +-Mes to produce the electron-transfer state.
