Dynamic Light Scattering: Applications of Photon Correlation Spectroscopy

Brand: R Pecora

In the twenty years since their inception, modern dynamic light-scattering techniques have become increasingly sophisticated, and their applications have grown exceedingly diverse. Applications of the techniques to problems in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and fluid mechanics have prolifer­ ated. It is probably no longer possible for one or two authors to write a monograph to cover in depth the advances in scattering techniques and the main areas in which they have made a major impact. This volume, which we expect to be the first of aseries, presents reviews of selected specialized areas by renowned experts. It makes no attempt to be comprehensive; it emphasizes a body of related applications to polymeric, biological, and colloidal systems, and to critical phenomena. The well-known monographs on dynamic light scattering by Berne and Pecora and by Chu were published almost ten years ago. They provided comprehensive treatments of the general principles of dynamic light scat­ tering and gave introductions to a wide variety of applications, but natu­ rally they could not treat the new applications and advances in older ones that have arisen in the last decade. The new applications include studies of interacting particles in solution (Chapter 4); scaling approaches to the dynamics of polymers, including polymers in semidilute solution (Chapter 5); the use of both Fabry-Perot interferometry and photon correlation spectroscopy to study bulk polymers (Chapter 6); studies of micelIes and microemulsions (Chapter 8); studies of polymer gels (Chapter 9).

Chemical Aspects of Photodynamic Therapy (Advanced Chemistry Texts)

Chemical Aspects of Photodynamic Therapy (Advanced Chemistry Texts) Lowest new price: $82.35
Lowest used price: $49.95
List price: $89.95
Author: Raymond Bonnett
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a ground breaking medical technique which uses lasers to activate light-sensitive chemicals to treat cancer and other diseases without resorting to surgery. For the first time, Chemical Aspects of Photodynamic Therapy introduces in an accessible way the physics, chemistry and biology behind the technique. This highly authoritative account of the account of the rapidly developing field of PDT explores its chemical basis, while presenting information in its historical context. Haematoporphyrin derivative is considered in detail, together with the new 'second generation' photosensitisers , such as chlorins, bacteriochlorins and phthalocyanines. Photosensitisers which are currently in clinical trials are compared and reference is made to new light sources, biological and clinical findings, and prospects for future developments.

This book is essential reading for new students and researchers alike studying PDT. It is recommended particularly for photochemists, as well as photobiologists and clinicians.

Fundamentals of Photochemistry

Author: K. Rohatgi

The Fundamentals of Photochemistry was primarily written as a university level textbook to introduce the subject to graduate, postgraduate and research students in the field of photophysics, photochemistry and photobiology. The book presents concepts, facts and theories of photophysical and photochemical phenomena in a complete and lucid manner. Photochemical reactions occur in the electronically excited states which, because of their multiplicity, provide many pathways for the reaction to follow. The creation and detection of excited states and their physical and chemical properties have been discussed from their fundamentals. An attempt has been made to emphasize the importance of spectroscopy and group theory in the understanding of photochemistry. The book stresses the importance of the Frank-Condon principle in radiative and nonradiative transfer of energy. It also emphasizes the nature and role of singlet oxygen in photo-peroxidation, atmospheric photochemistry and environmental photochemistry.

The importance of the subject has gained added dimensions with the intensive researches in the field of solar energy utilization and advances in laser technology and their applications. The first printing of the book in 1978 was well received, not only in India but also in other countries such as Canada, USA, Europe and Egypt. Some of the comments were very encouraging.

In the third edition all the mistakes, which had crept in the last printing, have been corrected. The material is designed to initiate the readers to actual study of a known photochemical reaction from simple observations to more sophisticated experiments in order to establish the mechanistic details of a reaction. It is expected that such an approach will promote the basic understanding of the methodology and an appreciation of the use of sophisticated instruments needed in photochemical studies. The pace of development in the field has been very fast and more could not be included because of the constraint of keeping the size of the book within limits.

Since the publication of the second edition of this handbook in 1993, the field of photochemical sciences has continued to expand across several disciplines including organic, inorganic, physical, analytical, and biological chemistries, and, most recently, nanosciences. Emphasizing the important role light-induced processes play in all of these fields, the Handbook of Photochemistry, Third Edition provides quick and convenient access to chemical and physical data that are crucial to photochemical investigations from the planning and experimentation phases to the interpretation of results.

The third edition of the Handbook of Photochemistry offers detailed overviews of the photochemical processes that occur in organic molecules and transition metal complexes, written by leading experts around the world. The authors maintain the highly regarded organization of data from previous editions while updating and expanding its tables with data pertaining to hundreds of new compounds. The book now contains sections focusing on metal complexes and organometallic compounds, offering photophysical and quenching data as well as reduction potential values, a key factor in photochemical electron transfer processes. It also features new information on light sources and filters, chemical actinometry, solutions to common problems in photoluminescence measurements, and lab-friendly techniques pertaining to experimental UV/visible spectroscopy and irradiation methodologies.

Radiation can only affect matter if absorbed by it. Within the broad range of 300-1000 nm, which we call "the visible", light quanta are energetic enough to produce excited electronic states in the atoms and molecules that absorb them. In these states the molecules may have quite different properties from those in their dormant condition, and reactions that would not otherwise occur become possible. About 80 % of the radiant energy emitted by our sun lies in this fertile band, and so long as the sun's surface temperature is maintained at about 6000° C this state of affairs will continue. This and the transparency of our atmosphere and waters have allowed the generation and evolution of life. Before life began the atmosphere probably also transmitted much of the solar short-wave radiation, but with the rise of vegetation a new product - oxygen - appeared and this, by a photochemical reaction in the upper atmosphere, led to the ozone layer that now protects us from the energetic "short-wave" quanta that once, perhaps, took part in the generation of life-molecules. Light is an ideal sensory stimulus. It travels in straight lines at great speed and, consequently, can be made to form an image from which an animal can make "true", continuous and immediate assessments of present and impending events.

Photochromic glasses are among the most widespread types of glasses, due largely to their popular use in sunglasses. These glasses are used not only in sunglasses, but also in various opto-electronic devices that have been developed and produced throughout the world. Until now, information about photochromic glasses has been widely dispersed in the literature, much of which was published in Russian and therefore of limited accessibility to the Western world. Physics and Chemistry of Photochromic Glasses brings together the combined knowledge and understanding of photochromic glasses from these publications. Coverage includes the structure, optical properties, coloration and bleaching mechanisms, technology, and metrology of these interesting materials.
