A fundamental goal of synthetic chemistry is the transformation of lower value molecular feedstocks into more complex substances of greater value. Anthropogenic waste gases are underappreciated and sustainable reagents for reactions and herein we explore the diverse reactivities afforded to these molecules by harnessing the powerful activating ability of photocatalysis.
