Abstract: The second edition of the Glossary of Terms Used in Photochemistry [Pure Appl. Chem.68, 2223-2286 (1996); ] has been both corrected and updated. Terms have been added related to molecular anisotropy, the use of polarized radiation, nonlinear optical phenomena, and the emerging field of computation of excited species. Some changes have been introduced in this "Glossary" regarding the terms related to radiation energy to make this collection fully compatible with internationally agreed… Expand

The Framework of Photochemistry: The Laws
At the beginning of the twentieth century, photochemistry acquires a quantitative aspect. The work by Grotthuss and Draper recognizes that light has to be absorbed to cause a chemical effect, even ifExpand
Principles of Heterogeneous Photocatalysis
At the turn of 1970s, the photo-response of solid materials became a constant subject of intensive research for possible application in modern technologies. Heterogeneous photocatalysis has evolvedExpand
Spectroscopic, photochromic and kinetic behavior of photo conversion of Aberchrome 540™ in an ionic liquid media.
It is proposed that depending on the ILs used, the stabilization of different forms of the fulgide can be controlled, thus resulting important in terms of choosing the appropriate ILs for a specific photochemical reaction. Expand
Photochemical investigation of a photochromic diarylethene compound that can be used as a wide range actinometer.
Very high ring-closure quantum yield values were obtained, in contrast with the low ring-opening quantum yields, which are nevertheless high enough to exploit 1 as an actinometer. Expand
Heterogeneous photocatalysis: guidelines on experimental setup, catalyst characterization, interpretation, and assessment of reactivity
ABSTRACT Soon after the publication of the first pioneering works on heterogeneous photocatalysis, the number of papers on this topic continuously increased. This intriguing field of research is veryExpand
The modelling of Surface-Water photoreactions made easier: introducing the concept of 'equivalent monochromatic wavelengths'.
This work shows that the EMW approach, although approximated, entails a negligible loss in accuracy compared to the exact polychromatic treatment of photochemical reactions, thereby completely changing the way multi-wavelength problems are dealt with. Expand
5.04 Photochemical Cycloadditions

Photochemical Behavior of Carbon Adsorbents
The purpose of this chapter is to provide a global view of the role of carbon adsorbents in photocatalysis, covering their application as either support in semiconductor/carbon composites (mainlyExpand
Combined theoretical and experimental characterizations of semiconductors for photoelectrocatalytic applications
Abstract Photoelectrocatalysis studies have emerged tremendous knowledge and experience, which has led to discovery of a number of active materials. Due to complexity of the processes involved,Expand


Glossary of Terms used in Photochemistry
