We have been exploring the light-triggered chemical reactions for several years and developed mild, photo-activated strategies for nanoparticle functionalization as well as protein and DNA conjugation. This work led us to exploring light sensitive cofactors within enzymes to look for new ways to drive chemical reactions by irradiating them with visible light. We are currently focusing stable and biocompatible flavin derivatives that can be used as enantioselective catalysts.
