Research Highlight: Photoredox borylation or aryldiazonium salts studied with the LP980

A multidisciplinary team of researchers led by Dr Ludovic Troian-Gautier (Université Catholique de Louvain) have published a study on the mechanism of photoredox reactions involving aryl diazonium salts and a range of photosensitisers. Using the LP980 transient absorption spectrometer from Edinburgh Instruments, the team detected the transient pair of radicals formed in the process and the lifetime of the reaction
