Author: Jacques Kagan
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

An introduction for graduate and upper-level undergraduate students to the study of electronically excited states of organic molecules. Their formation, physical deactivation pathways, and chemical reactions, are treated from a visual approach employing reaction schemes, graphs, tables, and diagrams, accompanied by explanatory text.

Author: Ottó Horváth
This book summarizes the results of studies on charge transferphotochemistry of metal complexes of the past few years. Thematerial covered is organized in such a manner that each chapterdiscusses the photoredox properties of complexes of a series ofmetals which belong to the same column of the periodic table,including both transition metals and main group metals (for thosethat show photoactivity). Foremostly, the book covers photoinducedprocesses in which the primary step is a charge transfer reactionof the excited metal complex. It is concerned primarily within-depth descriptions and discussions of the photochemistry ofcomplexes themselves, with less emphasis on theoreticaldiscussions.
This book is aimed at professional photochemical researchers aswell as students and chemists who are interested in organometallicand inorganic metal complexes and plan to become familiar withtheir charge transfer photochemistry.

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.

Author: Stephen E. Bialkowski
A unique guide to the application and theory of photothermalspectroscopy.
This book debunks the myth that photothermal spectroscopy is toocomplicated for practical application to chemical analysis, anddemonstrates the advantages this technique has over conventionalspectroscopy in facilitating extremely sensitive measurements ofoptical absorption in homogeneous media. The book covers thesubject from the ground up, lists all practical considerationsneeded to obtain accurate results, and provides a working knowledgeof the various methods in use--including photo acoustics andphotopyroelectric techniques.
Bringing together a wealth of information that has been scatteredthroughout the professional literature, Photothermal SpectroscopyMethods for Chemical Analysis covers methods and information thatshould be known to every analytical chemist, including:
* Descriptions of photothermal spectroscopy using a consistentmathematical language
* Helpful examples from the literature of analytical applicationsand current research
* Illustrations of all important points, consistent equations, andnumerous original figures
* A discussion of laser technology and how it is used to obtainaccurate results from extremely small samples of a few molecules
* Everything spectroscopists need to know to construct their ownapparatus and use it to conduct successful experiments
* Tips on how to interpret experimental results effectively whenusing nonlinear processes and in many other situations inphotothermal spectroscopy
* Considerations for further study of heterogeneous sampleanalysis
* Unified nomenclature of the patchwork of terms used byresearchers in analytical and physical chemistry, physics, andoptical engineering
* Equations that are derived with the aid of a symbolic languageprocessor to ensure correct results
Photothermal spectroscopy has seen major advances since the adventof laser technology twenty-five years ago. It is now possible,using a laser's coherent and powerful output, to obtain extremelysensitive measurements of optical absorption that exceed those ofmass spectroscopy by two or three times, and produce accurateresults from only a few molecules.
Focusing on samples in homogeneous media, this book provides aunique guide--incorporating theory and application--to allavailable photothermal spectroscopy techniques for chemical andmaterial analysis. It uses a systematic approach in itscomprehensive treatment of the theory, and covers all the necessarybackground material, from laser optics to fluid dynamics.
This accessible text describes the various processes used to detectthermal perturbation of a sample, ranging from optical excitationto nonlinear processes, and covers all optical principles necessaryto understand photothermal spectroscopy. When dealing withhydrodynamic equations that govern energy transfer in the samplematrix, it provides an original impulse-response approach. Inaddition, the book explains how to construct the apparatus oneneeds to conduct successful photothermal experiments, sincecommercial equipment is not available as in conventionalspectrophotometry.
Throughout, this book draws on information from a wide range offields, including analytical spectroscopy, measurement physics,physical optics, and chemical dynamics. Providing clearexplanations at every turn, the author demonstrates a completeunderstanding of the theory and applications as a firm basis forthe correct interpretation of experimental results.
For analytical chemists, as well as for students at the graduatelevel, Photothermal Spectroscopy Methods for Chemical Analysis isan unmatched resource that develops a consistent mathematical basisfor signal description, consolidates previous theories, andprovides invaluable insight into laser technology.
