Covalent triazine-based frameworks as tailored catalysts for the photocatalytic conversion of biogenic chemicals.

1. Covalent triazine-based frameworks (CTFs) are an interesting and novel class of highly cross-linked polymers that fulfill these requirements for a photocatalyst. The polymerization of numerous different dinitrile building blocks in the presence of strong Lewis or Brønsted acids gives rise to highly porous, nitrogen-rich and carbonaceous frameworks, which have optimal semiconductor properties for use in photocatalysis.

2. Photocatalytic oxidation could also be applied to a variety of other biomass-based compounds based on the catalyst class presented, so that a completely renewable value-chain would be conceivable.
