Schenck-sensitization mechanism

Chemical transformation of one molecular entity caused by photoexcitation of a sensitizer, which undergoes temporarycovalent bond formation with the molecular entity (M).
  1. This mechanism is the basis of the Type I photooxygenation.
  2. The reactive molecular entity could be ground-state molecular dioxygen, O2, in which case energy transfer may occur producing singlet molecular oxygen, this being the basis of the Type II photooxygenation.
