|Abstract: ||The impressive optoelectronic performance and low
production cost of metal halide perovskites have inspired
applications well beyond efficient solar cells. Herein, we widen
the materials engineering options available for the efficient and
selective photocatalytic oxidation of benzylic alcohols, an
industrially significant reaction, using formamidinium lead bro-
mide (FAPbBr3) and other perovskite-based materials. The best
performance was obtained using a FAPbBr3/TiO2 hybrid photo-catalyst under simulated solar illumination. Detailed optical studies
reveal the synergetic photophysical pathways arising in FAPbBr
3/TiO2 composites. An experimentally supported model rationalizing
the large conversion enhancement over the pure constituents
shows that this strategy offers new prospects for metal halide
perovskites in photocatalytic applications.|
