This interdisciplinary book describes the fundamental chemistry involved in photochemical processes, and explains the critical ways in which photochemical changes affect life on Earth. The central chapters describe the ways in which a light-excited entity may react or undergo radiative or radiationless decay. The important experimental techniques in the field are explained and a brief introduction is provided to the detailed dynamics of photochemical processes. Combining theory and practical applications, the book surveys natural photochemical processes and their applications, including the synthesis of new and complex organic species, different kinds of imaging and photographic techniques, and solar energy.

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

Die organische Photochemie kann in drei Gebiete eingeteilt werden: theoretische Photochemie als Arbeitsgebiet des Physikochemikers, Apparatekunde als Aufgabenbereich des Physikers und Ingenieurs und präparative Photochemie, welche das Feld des organischen Chemikers ist. Während es früher für den einzelnen nicht allzu schwierig war, die Gesamtheit dieser Gebiete zu beherrschen, ist dies jetzt fast unmöglich geworden, da die in Frage kommenden Wissenschaften zu sehr in die Breite und Tiefe gewachsen sind; eine Einzelbehandlung ist daher angezeigt. Viele Gründe können dafür angeführt werden, daß die präparative organische Photochemie sich in den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten in einer Weise entwickelt hat, welche in schroffem Gegensatz zu der langsamen Entwicklung in früheren Jahren steht. Hier soll darauf hingewiesen werden, daß die politischen Um wälzungen der letzten 25 Jahre manche europäischen Chemiker ver anlaßten, ihre Tätigkeit in tropische oder subtropische Länder mit intensiver Sonnenbestrahlung zu verlegen; eine eingehende Beschäf tigung mit Reaktionen im Sonnenlicht lag daher nahe und fand in einer Reihe von Fällen tatsächlich statt. Von größerer Bedeutung ist, daß die Kenntnis von der Wechselwirkur g zwischen Strahlung und organischer Materie eine erhebliche Erweiterung erfahren hat; zum anderen hat man gelernt, radikalisehe bzw. radikalinduzierte Reaktionen (und als solche sieht man heute die meisten photochemischen Reaktionen an) zu be herrschen und zu lenken. Heute sind photochemische Versuche überall leicht und reproduzierbar auszuführen, da die Technik neuartige und meist höchst leistungsfähige Bestrahlungseinheiten, UV-Lampen usw.

Computational Photochemistry, Volume 16 provides an overview of general strategies currently used to investigate photochemical processes. Whilst contributing to establishing a branch of computational chemistry that deals with the properties and reactivity of photoexcited molecules, the book also provides insight into the conceptual and methodological research lines in computational photochemistry. Packed with examples of applications of modelling of basic photochemical reactions and the computer-aided development of novel materials in the field of photodegradation (paints), photoprotection (sunscreens), color regulation (photochromic devices) and fluorescent probes, this book is particularly useful to anyone interested in the effect of light on molecules and materials. * Provides an overview of computational photochemistry, dealing with principles and applications * Demonstrates techniques that can be used in the computer-aided design of novel photo responsive materials * Written by experts in computational photochemistry

In the decade after this book first appeared in 1974, research involving organic photochemistry was prolific. In this updated and expanded 1986 edition the authors summarise those classes of reaction that best illustrate the types of photochemical behaviour commonly observed for simple organic molecules. The different products obtained from compounds subjected to thermal and photolytic activation are explained with the aid of appropriate diagrams and mechanistic schemes. Where necessary, these are backed up by simple energy level profiles. Thus, theory and empirical data are interwoven to provide a firm basis which is aided by the generous basic references at the end of each chapter.
