Book Description

January 5, 2010 1891389254 978-1891389252 1st
MODERN MOLECULAR PHOTOCHEMISTRY OF ORGANIC MOLECULES is a comprehensive revision of Turro's classic text, MODERN MOLECULAR PHOTOCHEMSITRY, which has been the standard of the field for three decades. For a crystal-clear introduction to organic photochemistry in pictorial terms, this book comprises all of the same introductory chapters that make up PRINCIPLES OF MOLECULAR PHOTOCHEMISTRY but then goes on to provide additional chapters that cover the methods for determining the mechanisms of organic photoreactions, and describe comprehensively the photochemistry of the basic functional groups of organic chemistry. The text also includes special topic chapters on supramolecule organic photochemistry, the first of its kind, and the role of triplet and singlet molecular oxygen in organic photochemistry.This text will be of interest to not only practicing photochemists and their students, but also to biological scientists, polymer scientists, material scientists and nanoscientists who use photochemistry and photophysics in their research and teaching. For adopting professors, an art CD of figures from the book is also available.

Editorial Reviews


This text shows the student how the apparent complexity of organic photochemistry can be reduced to a set of simple paradigms that can be applied to all organic functional groups. The critical concepts of electronic and spin interactions are presented in pictorial terms that can be readily understood by students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. --Andrei Kutateladze, University of Denver

An absolute must buy if you are a photochemist. I usually won't loan this book to anyone, but when I do, they get their learning on. Fantastic book.
