Abstract

9-Phenyl-10-methylacridium ion acts as an effective photocatalyst for solvent free selective photocatalytic oxidation of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde under visible light irradiation via efficient photoinduced electron transfer from benzyl alcohol to the singlet excited state of the acridinium ion.
