Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Organic Photochemistry can broadly be divided into two, covering either the physical organic chemistry aspects of the subject or the practical application of photochemistry in the synthesis of new molecules. Photochemistry can offer the synthetic organic chemist a high yielding, clean and efficient reaction process, and can give access to structures or stereochemistry that are difficult to prepare in other ways.

This new volume in the Postgraduate Chemistry Series covers synthetic organic photochemistry at postgraduate student and research level. It provides a thorough overview of this important and exciting area of research, demonstrating the underlying principles of synthetic organic photochemistry and, by reference to a range of organic reaction types, it's effective use in the synthesis of new organic materials.

Written for postgraduate students and those beginning their research careers, the book will also serve as a handy reference for more experienced workers.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a gem of a book. It comprehensively covers the subject and is a pleasure to read. I highly recommend it for courses on photochemistry and for practitioners in all areas of the photosciences. Having been afforded the opportunity to comment on sections of the book prior to its publication, I am well aware of the care that went into providing the accurate and up to date descriptions of physical concepts and reaction mechanisms that are the hallmark of this book. The knowledge explosion that occurred in the course of the preceding half century has led some to conclude that the photochemistry of organic molecules is a mature field. By describing the intricacies of photophysical and photochemical responses of a cornucopia of selected molecules this book dispels this notion.
