In this project we intend to study the synthesis of quinones and naphthoquinones starting from the corresponding phenols and naphthols. The idea is to promote the oxidation of these precursors by the action of singlet oxygen (1O2) under continuous flow conditions (Photochemical Continuous Flow). The oxidizing species (1O2) will be generated by photocatalysis using different porphyrins as photosensitizer. Also, different reactors will be tested under continuous flow (Scheme 1). The present studies are planned to be developed by this researcher at the Florida State University under the supervision of Prof. Tyler McQuade from July to December 2015 (6 months). (AU)
