The sun is the most sustainable energy source available on our planet and could be used to power photochemical reactions. Scientists now present a widely applicable, cost-effective photomicroreactor. It is based on ”Luminescent Solar Concentrators”, which harvest, convert, and make photons available for chemical reactions. Thus, the researchers were able to synthesize various substances, including two pharmaceuticals.
