The earlier experiments with potassium ferrioxalate have been extended and a detailed study has been made of the photolysis of the acidified solutions previously recommended for chemical actinometry (Parker 1953). Accurate values of quantum efficiency have been determined at twelve wavelengths between 254 and 578 mμ, and the effect of temperature, light intensity and of photolyte composition have been investigated. At some wavelengths independent values of quantum efficiency have been obtained…

A CONVENIENT IRRADIATION CELL FOR FERRIOXALATE ACTINOMETRY

Abstract— A calibrated volumetric optical cuvette is described which both simplifies the technique and improves the precision of potassium ferrioxalate actinometry. The cuvette is used both for

Femtosecond infrared spectroscopy reveals the primary events of the ferrioxalate actinometer.

Femtosecond mid-infrared spectroscopy combined with ultrafast laser photolysis is used to obtain unique structural-dynamical information associated with the primary light-triggered processes thereby finally providing the missing quantitative molecular-level foundations that ultimately justify a utilization of aqueous ferrioxalate as a true photochemical standard.

Ferrioxalate-polyoxometalate system as a new chemical actinometer.

This alternative actinometry eliminates the postirradiation analytical procedure that needs phenanthroline as a complexation reagent for Fe2+ and the subsequent color development, and it enables the in-situ quantification of the light intensity in a simpler way by monitoring the formation of POM- as a proxy indicator.
