Three photochemical reactions were investigated under solar irradiation conditions with moderately concentrated sunlight: the photoacylation of naphthoquinone with butyraldehyde and the dye-sensitized photooxygenations of citronellol and 1,5-dihydroxynaphthalene, respectively. All reactions were easily performed on multigram-to-kilogram scales using cheap and commercially available starting materials, and yielded important key intermediates for industrial applications.
