Developed from Nick Turro's best-selling text for three decades, Modern Molecular Photochemistry, this book develops photochemical and photophysical concepts from a small set of familiar principles and provides clear descriptions in pictorial terms. 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.The most common examples of photochemical pericyclic reactions are electrocyclic ring openings and ring closures, cycloaddition ... In practice, we seek to select only the lowest-energy reaction pathways from a given initial excited state.
