Book description

The only combined organic photochemistry and photobiology handbook

As spectroscopic, synthetic and biological tools become more and more sophisticated, photochemistry and photobiology are merging?making interdisciplinary research essential. Following in the footsteps of its bestselling predecessors, the CRC Handbook of Organic Photochemistry and Photobiology, Third Edition has evolved into a state-of-the-art collection on modern aspects of photochemistry and photobiology.

A compilation 67 of topical reviews by leading experts, this compilation provides cutting-edge information on the applications of photochemical and photobiological principles, techniques, and methodologies.

New and updated topics in this edition include

  • Industrial photochemistry
  • Photocatalyic water splitting
  • Photocatalysis
  • Photostability of drugs
  • Photochemistry in microreactors
  • Photochemical key-steps in organic synthesis
  • Photochirogenesis
  • Photolabile protecting groups
  • Solar photochemistry
  • Computational photochemistry and photobiology
  • Spin-center shift reactions
  • Sustainable photochemistry
  • Artificial photosynthetic systems
  • Biology of UV-A radiation
  • UV radiation and vitamin D
  • Photodynamic drug delivery
  • Photoimmunology
  • Photodermatology
  • Endogenous antioxidant photoprotection and its enhancement in human skin
  • Phototoxicity of drugs
  • Photodynamic approaches to water disinfection?

This high-quality and concise collection bridges traditional topics, current trends, and future directions to provide you with the most authoritative and complete resource available on the subject. The IUPAC glossary of photochemistry is included as a CD-ROM.
