Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 237)

Abstract

For the rapidly developing area of Photochemical Reactors Engineering an assessment of some fundamentals is reported. Topics surveyed are light sources, types of photoreactors and radiation modelling approaches. Some general remarks are also reported from which the need for further development of the general research area arises.
