Title: Photochemical upconversion in water

Abstract

The current investigation achieves photochemical upconversion in pure water using combinations of water soluble Ru(ii) metal-to-ligand charge transfer (MLCT) sensitizers in concert with 9-anthracenecarboxylate (AnCO 2 ) and 1-pyrenecarboxylate (PyCO 2 ).
