Heterogeneous photocatalytic reactions can be efficiently driven by completely integrated photocatalyst–light emitter units which are wirelessly powered from outside the reaction vessel using resonant inductive coupling. To demonstrate the universal applicability of the concept, three representative photocatalytic reactions, H2O2 production, methylene blue degradation and nitrobenzene reduction to aniline, were investigated.
