Features surveys of all areas of organic, inorganic, physical and biological photochemistry. The text serves as a source of scientific findings pertinent to chemistry and biochemistry. It addresses the state of developments in the field, employing reviews of active research, including recent innovations, techniques and applications.
". . .I cannot count the number of times I have used. . .Organic Photochemistry as a lead source to an area of photochemistry; I predict my group and I will use this new series as often."
---Journal of the American Chemical Society (1998)
". . .this book will be of interest not only to photochemists but to all those with an interest in organic chemistry and synthetic methods. "
---Chemistry & Industry
". . .a useful resource in any institutional library collection. . .I look forward to future volumes. "
