Aimed at an undergraduate audience, the text describes the `new' chemistry that follows the absorption of light, and explains how light has this extraordinary influence on chemical behaviour. Examples of established principles are presented examining the way in which life and the other natural processes depend on photochemistry, and also how photochemistry can be used in a variety of applications.
Affordable for undergraduates.
Relevant, interesting and useful examples of applications in everyday life.
Introduces an important topic and relates it to other core chemistry areas such as kinetics spectroscopy and symmetry.
