Inexpensive milliwatt light emitting diode (LED) sources allow energy- and atom-efficient microphotochemical reactions. Thus, sources constructed from three 120 mW 5 mm diameter 627 nm LED's enable μmol-mmol scale methylene blue-sensitized singlet oxygen photooxidations of various arenes and cyclopentadienones using a 3-5 M excess of oxygen in 82-98% yields.
