    Visible light photocatalysis has several applications as a method of chemical transformation, with wide‐ranging effects on the production of energy, preservation of the environment, the development of new drugs and human health. The light‐induced sensitization of cofactors for photodynamic therapy in the treatment of cancer is a remarkable application with an influence on human health. The use of this photosensitization strategy in medicine has sparked interest in other photochemical techniques, such as photoredox catalysis, that could have an impact on biological research. The discovery of useful synthetic chemical transformations during the past ten years has made light‐mediated catalysis a highly used method for chemical synthesis. This review will highlight the recent advances of visible‐light photocatalysis through its application in anticancer activity.
