Excited States And Photochemistry Of Organic Molecules
Excited States and Photochemistry of Organic Molecules
This volume provides a non-mathematical introduction to electronicexcitation in organic molecules and their spectroscopy,photophysics, and photochemistry.Simple qualitative models, such as the perimeter model, are used todescribe the nature of electronic states, and this book reveals howthese states are probed by spectroscopy with ordinary and polarizedlight, including natural and magnetic circular dichroism. Theconcept of potential energy surfaces is emphasized in discussingthe photophysical processes and photochemical reactions that followexcitation. Particular attention is paid to the behavior ofmolecules at biradicaloid geometries and spin-orbit coupling inbiradicals. Simple intuitive models for electronic structure and reactivity areemphasized, and practical application of theory is illustratedthrough numerous worked examples.
