Titanium-dioxide-mediated photocatalysed reaction of selected organic systems

Titanium-dioxide-mediated photocatalysed reaction of selected organic systems The photocatalysed reaction of four selected organic systems, namely dichlone (1), 2-amino-5-chloropyridine (2), benzoyl peroxide (3) and 3-chloro perbenzoic acid (4), has been investigated in an acetonitrile/water mixture in the presence of titanium dioxide and oxygen. An attempt has been made to identify the products formed during the photo-oxidation process using the GC/MS analysis technique. The photolysis of dichlone (1) leads to the formation of phthalic anhydride (11) and 1H-indene-1,2,3-trione (10), whereas 2-amino-5-chloropyridine (2) gave rise to 2,2′-diamino bipyridyl (14), 2-pyridinamine (16), 2-hydroxy-5-chloropyridine (18), bipyridyl (19) and 2-amino bipyridyl (21). The photolysis of benzoyl peroxide (3) yielded a mixture of products such as benzoic acid (24), biphenyl (27), biphenyl-4-carboxylic acid (29) and benzoic acid phenyl ester (30). Two intermediate products, as 3-chlorobenzaldehyde (35) and hydroxyl added 3-chlorobenzaldehyde (33), have been identified in the case of 3-chloro perbenzoic acid (4). The products have been identified by comparing the molecular ion and mass fragmentation peaks of the products with those reported in the GC-MS library. A probable mechanism for the formation of the products has been proposed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
