The latest developments in photochemistry on solid surfaces, i.e. photochemistry in heterogeneous systems, including liquid crystallines, are brought together for the first time in a single volume. Distinguished photochemists from various fields have contributed to the book which covers a number of important applications: molecular photo-devices for super-memory, photochemical vapor deposition to produce thin-layered electronic semiconducting materials, sensitive optical media, the control of photochemical reactions pathways, etc. Photochemistry on solid surfaces is now a major field and this book which provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the subject will be of interest to a wide range of readers.

Author: Laurence D. Barron
Ranging from the physics of elementary particles to the structure of viruses, the subject matter of this book stresses the importance of optical activity and chirality in modern science and will be of interest to a wide range of scientists. Using classical and quantum methods with a strong emphasis on symmetry principles, the volume develops the theory of varied optical activity and related phenomena from the perspective of molecular scattering of polarized light.

|Essentials of Molecular Photochemistry
Lowest used price: $44.24
List price: $89.95
Author: Andrew Gilbert
This text is aimed at final year undergraduates, beginning postgraduates, and those requiring a fundamental knowledge of photophysical and photochemical processes. The first two chapters provide an introduction to the more physical and quantitative aspects of the subject. More advanced topics concerned with the interaction between matter and radiation, molecular photophysics, and emission quenching are considered in the following three chapters. Difficult concepts are presented from a qualitative (pictorial) point of view rather than a purely mathematical one and a quantum rather than a classical approach is adopted throughout. The photochemical reactions of organic compounds are classified according to chromophore type (i.e. ethenes, dienes, and ethynes, carbonyl compounds, aromatic compounds, chromophores containing nitrogen, and other organic chromophores). However, in view of the importance of photo-oxygenation processes, this is considered as a separate topic in the final chapter.
|Thermoluminescence of Solids (Cambridge Solid State Science Series)
Lowest new price: $76.96
Lowest used price: $55.36
List price: $98.00
Author: S. W. S. McKeever
McKeever gives us a comprehensive survey of thermoluminescence, an important, versatile, and widely-used experimental technique. Bringing together previously isolated specialized approaches, he stresses the importance of the solid state aspects of the phenomenon and links these to applications in dating, dosimetry, and geology. The book contains chapters on analysis and special properties, on instrumentation, and on the variety of defect reaction--using the alkali halides and SiO2 as examples--that can take place within a material to yield thermoluminescence. Three chapters concerning applications discuss the features of the solid state reactions to explain some of the properties observed in practice.
|Understanding and Manipulating Excited-State Processes (Molecular and Supramolecular Photochemistry)
Lowest new price: $47.71
Lowest used price: $45.96
List price: $283.00
A state-of-the-art review of original research, this book includes discussions of intramolecular photoadditoin of nucleophiles, electrophiles, and radical species to the activated aromatic ring; new methods for regio-, anantio-, and diastereoselective photooxygenations involving singlet oxygen mechanisms; and applications of microreactors for photochemical synthesis of large-ring compounds, photochemical rearrangement, photocycloaddition, and chiral photochemical synthesis. It covers the role of layered inorganic solids in the construction, characterization, and analysis of supramolecular assemblies of metal ions, molecules, metal complexes, and proteins, and more.

Author: Jacques Kagan
Organic Photochemistry outlines the principles, techniques and well-known reactions occurring in organic molecules and also illustrates more complex photochemical transformations occurring in organic chemistry.
Many photochemical transformations convert simple molecules into extremely complex products with an ease not approached by the standard synthetic chemistry practiced in the laboratory. In the earlier chapters, the author outlines the principles, techniques and some of the well-known reactions occurring in organic molecules and later illustrates more complex photochemical transformations occuring in organic chemistry. Experimental techniques are included to encourage novices. Topics are emphasized where structural transformations can be formulated chemically. Practical applications are collected together. The book starts at a comfortably simple level with enough examples to provide an introduction to the diversity of photochemical reactions.
