Some of the more important reactions, not involving rearrangement, that follow n~ 'IT* excitation of ketones are summarized in the following diagrams. Although in some cases there is no dicisive evidence on whether reaction proceeds through the n 'IT* singlet or triplet state the triplet mechanisms are illustrated, leading to radical intermediates. This mode of reaction is certainly common, if not universalt. homerization following n~ 'IT* excitation of citral (I) brings out some
