Abstract

A highly selective oxidation of alkenes included within a Y zeolite is achieved by generating singlet oxygen via excitation of a monomeric dye exchanged within a zeolite; conformational control brought forth by the medium is suggested to be responsible for the observed remarkable selectivity.
