IN recent years Gopala Rao and Dhar1, Gopala Rao2, Dhar and co-workers3 and Corbet4 have shown that nitrification in soils occurs partly as a photochemical reaction under the influence of sunlight. Dhar and co-workers5 have also brought forward considerable evidence to show that fixation of atmospheric nitrogen is favoured by sunlight.

Photon-Driven Nitrogen Fixation: Current Progress, Thermodynamic Considerations, and Future Outlook

Over the last century, the industrialization of agriculture and the consumption of fossil fuels have resulted in a significant imbalance and redistribution in nitrogen-containing resources. This has

A survey of photogeochemistry

A compilation of known reactions shows the extent of light-driven interactions between naturally occurring components of land, air, and water, and provides the backdrop for an outline of the mechanisms of these phenomena.

Exposure to Light Elicits a Spectrum of Chemical Changes in Soil

The significance of photochemically active solar radiation is well substantiated in Earth's air and water environments, but no broad connection has yet been ascertained between sunlight and the
