Title: Compositions and methods for hydrocarbon functionalization

Abstract

Embodiments of the present disclosure provide for methods of hydrocarbon functionalization, methods and systems for converting a hydrocarbon into a compound including at least one group ((e.g., hydroxyl group) (e.g., methane to methanol)), functionalized hydrocarbons, and the like. Systems and methods as described herein can utilize photocatalysis.
