Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 22)

Abstract

Photochemical monomolecular processes such as dissociation, isomerization and ionization which occur after the photoexcitation of molecular electronic states are well known and had been studied before lasers were created (see, for instance [4.1–3]). Since the aim of this book is to only consider selective photochemical processes, this chapter will be devoted solely to the discussion of those aspects of monomolecular photoprocesses in the excited electronic state which are related to selectivity.
