From the Back Cover
Organic Photochemistry can broadly be divided into two, coveringeither the physical organic chemistry aspects of the subject or thepractical application of photochemistry in the synthesis of newmolecules. Photochemistry can offer the synthetic organic chemist ahigh yielding, clean and efficient reaction process, and can giveaccess to structures or stereochemistry that are difficult toprepare in other ways.
This new volume in the Postgraduate Chemistry Series coverssynthetic organic photochemistry at postgraduate student andresearch level. It provides a thorough overview of this importantand exciting area of research, demonstrating the underlyingprinciples of synthetic organic photochemistry and, by reference toa range of organic reaction types, it's effective use in thesynthesis of new organic materials.
Written for postgraduate students and those beginning theirresearch careers, the book will also serve as a handy reference formore experienced workers.
