Contributors from around the world offer wide-ranging (and sometimes controversial) discussions of the state of research in photocatalysis. Emphasis is on the surface science of catalysis, especially at the gas/solid interface. Eighteen chapters explore topics ranging from the interaction between light and matter, colloidal semiconductors, and the thermodynamics and kinetics of photocatalysis, to photocatalysis in homogeneous and heterogeneous phases, photo-electrocatalysis, and catalysis in energy production and water purification.

Photochemistry is the study of the interaction of light with matter, and this concise and clearly written book provides a very accessible introduction to the subject. When visible or ultraviolet light is absorbed by a molecule, the result often is its apparently erratic behavior, with chemical properties distinct from those of the unexcited molecule. The primary part of this volume explores the role of light in this metamorphosis, and explains the chemical processes that occur after the absorption of light. The emission of radiation as fluorescence and phosphorescence is explained in depth in a separate chapter. The final two chapters are dedicated to the impact photochemistry has on life, and to the ways Man has made use of this discipline in a variety of applications.

Since the publication of the second edition of this handbook in 1993, the field of photochemical sciences has continued to expand across several disciplines including organic, inorganic, physical, analytical, and biological chemistries, and, most recently, nanosciences. Emphasizing the important role light-induced processes play in all of these fields, the Handbook of Photochemistry, Third Edition provides quick and convenient access to chemical and physical data that are crucial to photochemical investigations from the planning and experimentation phases to the interpretation of results.
The third edition of the Handbook of Photochemistry offers detailed overviews of the photochemical processes that occur in organic molecules and transition metal complexes, written by leading experts around the world. The authors maintain the highly regarded organization of data from previous editions while updating and expanding its tables with data pertaining to hundreds of new compounds. The book now contains sections focusing on metal complexes and organometallic compounds, offering photophysical and quenching data as well as reduction potential values, a key factor in photochemical electron transfer processes. It also features new information on light sources and filters, chemical actinometry, solutions to common problems in photoluminescence measurements, and lab-friendly techniques pertaining to experimental UV/visible spectroscopy and irradiation methodologies.
The Handbook of Photochemistry delivers an exhaustive, up-to-date collection of photophysical and electrochemical data on organic compounds and transition metal complexes. It represents an invaluable compilation of complementary data, background information, and references for students, researchers, and spectroscopists performing a vast assortment of photochemical experiments.

New organic compounds with interesting and improved electronic and photonic properties are being reported on a daily basis, with new light-triggered materials being designed for molecular and bioelectronic devices.
The relatively new concept of molecular photonics embraces photochemistry and photophysics, dealing with light-induced changes in materials and their electronic states as well as the field of optics.
This volume begins with a background and survey of current light-related research fields, moving on to the fundamentals of molecular photonics. Subsequent chapters deal with the characteristics of photochemical reaction and typical processes of photophysical chemistry, while the last two chapters focus on the study of materials-induced changes in light.
The most important concepts are summarized in overview tables to promote active understanding of new topics.

This monograph/reference focuses on those subjects that are considered essential to an understanding of inorganic photochemistry. Graduate students with a background in physical chemistry will find that the quantum mechanical treatments related to the principles of spectroscopy and chemical dynamics are readily accessible. And professionals will find that the tabulated data, equations, and general information makes this book an essential complement to the journal literature required in the daily planning of photochemical work. Chapters cover the nature of light and the uncertainty principle, detection of intermediates, elements of inorganic spectroscopy, kinetics of photoluminescence, photoredox reactions, ligand field photochemistry, and elements of organometallic photochemistry. Extensive appendixes cover physical constants and conversion factors for photochemical work, character tables for symmetry groups, vibrational motions, description of the chemical bonding in coordination complexes, charge transfer transitions, and Born cycles related to charge transfer processes.
