Summary and Info
As the science of photochemistry evolves with the development of new technologies based on advanced materials and the improved ability to probe complex (photo)biological processes at a molecular level, there is a need to address the state of the art in the field with authoritative reviews of original researchвЂ”including the most recent innovations, techniques, and applicationsвЂ”from the laboratories of acknowledged experts around the world. Focusing on complex naturally occurring and synthetic supramolecular arrays, this latest volume in an exciting, new series surveying all areas of photochemistry describes the mechanism by which transition metal complexes bind to DNA and how the DNA ''scaffold'' modifies the photochemical and photophysical properties of bound complexes explores photoinduced electron transfer between intercalated molecules, considering the possible function of DNA as a ''molecular wire'' examines thermally and photochemically induced electron transfer in supramolecular assemblies consisting of inorganic molecular building blocks such as transition metal clusters and nanocrystalline semiconductor particles delineates the properties of liquid crystal polymers and molecular crystals, emphasizing how supramolecular organization affects photochemical reactivity as well as the photophysical properties of component molecular units reveals studies on the excited state behavior of reactive intermediates and upper excited states with time-resolved techniques and more! Supplemented with over 1500 bibliographic citations, tables, equations, and drawings, allowing for further clarification of the material, Organic and Inorganic Photochemistry is an indispensable resource for organic, inorganic, and physical chemists; photochemists; and graduate-level students in these disciplines.
