Abstract: Energy-efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) have been evaluated as a light source for the sensitized generation of singlet oxygen used in the oxidation of 1,3-butadienes and furfural derivatives using a range of dyes including rose bengal, methylene blue, and tetraphenylporphyrin. An ambient temperature water jacket was sufficient to cool reaction mixtures due to the low heat output of lamps and the reaction rates using 110 W of CFL were slower but comparable to those obtained using a 500 W tungsten halogen lamp. The conditions were applied to the photooxidation of a series of furan aldehydes and 1,3-butadienes to give products in good yield in 4-96 hours.
