Introduction to Organic Photochemistry John D. Coyle, The Open University, Milton Keynes The purpose of this book is to provide an introductory account of the major types of organic photochemical reactions, to enable those with a prior knowledge of basic organic chemistry to appreciate the differences between processes which occur photochemically (through an electronically excited state) and those that occur thermally (directly from the electronic ground state). The material is organized according to organic functional groups, in parallel with the approach adopted in most general textbooks on organic chemistry. In this respect it differs from many of the existing, older organic photochemistry texts. The first chapter provides an account of the distinctive features of photochemical reactions, and a physical/mechanistic framework for the descriptions in the rest of the book. The overall emphasis is on organic photoreactions potentially useful in synthesis. The book thus integrates this branch of chemistry with broader aspects of the subject, and introduces the reader to important applications of organic photochemistry.

Organic Photochemistry outlines the principles, techniques and well-known reactions occurring in organic molecules and also illustrates more complex photochemical transformations occurring in organic chemistry. Many photochemical transformations convert simple molecules into extremely complex products with an ease not approached by the standard synthetic chemistry practiced in the laboratory. In the earlier chapters, the author outlines the principles, techniques and some of the well-known reactions occurring in organic molecules and later illustrates more complex photochemical transformations occuring in organic chemistry. Experimental techniques are included to encourage novices. Topics are emphasized where structural transformations can be formulated chemically. Practical applications are collected together. The book starts at a comfortably simple level with enough examples to provide an introduction to the diversity of photochemical reactions. * Includes experimental techniques to encourage novices. * Emphasizes topics where structural transformations can be formulated chemically * Collects and presents practical applications * Written in a simple style including enough examples to serve as an introduction to the diversity of photochemical reactions

This text discusses di-p-methane rearrangements via radical-cation intermediates, the photo-Fries rearrangement in organized media and of biologically active compounds, electron transfer leading to fragmentation, dimerization, and nucleophilic capture, and the characterization and reactivity of photochemically generated phenylene bis(diradical) species. The authors reveal experimental and computational techniques for the study of phenylene-linked carbenes and nitrenes. Brimming with over 900 references, Photochemistry of Organic Molecules in Isotropic and Anisotropic Media is crucial for professionals and students in photochemistry; chemical engineering; materials and semiconductor science; and organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry.

Basic laboratory technique in organic chemistry plays a vital part in the education of chemistry students. This textbook contains a collection of multistep experiments that all feature one or two photochemical key steps. More than 40 researchers active in the field of organic photochemistry have contributed their favorite experiments for this unusual and modern textbook. In addition, a general section discusses reaction control, the interpretation of UV spectra, quantum yields and chemical yields, and gives information on solvents, lamps, filters, and vessels. The experiments chosen fulfil the following criteria: * starting materials are cheap and readily available * the necessary photochemical equipment is available in (most) institutes * products prepared are useful for further syntheses * the light reaction is efficient. 'Photochemical Key Steps' is a source book of new ideas for supervisors of lab courses and gives students the opportunity to learn about modern techniques in the laboratory and about the important role photochemistry plays in organic synthesis.

Only a small part of the numerous photochemical reactions in organic compounds result in reversible structural changes. The latter are accom panied by a change in physical properties, in particular, of electronic spectra. It is tempting to try to use this photochromic effect in various systems for controlling and regulating light fluxes and for data recording. Eventually an independent trend emerged in photochemistry - the study of the photochromism of organic compounds to establish relationships between structure and photochemical behavior, the theoretical analysis of these relationships to predict structures with pre-set photochromic parameters, and, finally, the identification of suitable areas for the application of photochromism. This monograph summarizes the results of recent studies carried out by a number of research institutions in the USSR and the GDR. Devoted to an important aspect of applied photochemistry, this monograph contains a detailed exposition of the chemical photochromes referred to briefly in the earlier editions of "Introduction to the Photochemistry of Organic Compounds" (Khimiya Press, Moscow, 1976) and "Photochemical Proces ses in Layers" (Khimiya Press, Moscow, 1978).
