A colour is worth a thousand spectra

Scientists from Germany have developed a quick and low-cost screening method for photocatalytic reactions based on a simple change of colour.

In a recent study in Reaction Chemistry & Engineering, Burkhard König and a colleague from the University of Regensburg have developed a simple colorimetric method to analyse the outcome of photocatalytic reactions. An organic dye changes colour if a reaction works and can even indicate how much of the starting materials has been consumed.
