Ultrafast Processes in Chemistry and Photobiology
for the 21st Century Monograph".

Blackwell Science,1985 [ISBN 086542893X]
This new volume continues the tradition of
the 'Chemistry for the 21st Century' Series in exploring areas of active
research in chemistry today which are likely to have a profound effect
on the science of chemistry in the future. Lasers have had, and will
have, a positive impact on chemistry with the short pulse width of the
laser enabling chemists to measure the primary processes of important
chemical changes. This use of lasers to measure ultrafast processes
in chemistry and photobiology is one of the most active as well as one
of the most fundamental field of research. This volume presents expert
contributions summarizing the state-of-the-art in this most important
* a state-of-the-art presentation of one of the most active research
areas in chemistry today.
Foreword; Ultrafast processes in chemistry
and photobiology: application of short laser pulse, introduction; Ultrafast

dynamics of liquids and solutions; Direct pump-probe experiments on
the solvated electron in water and alcohols;
Solvent and nuclear dynamics of ultrafast intermolecular electron transfer;
Ultrafast photochemistry and solvation in liquids and liquid interfaces;
Ultrafast vibrational spectroscopy of molecular and protein dynamics;
Multiphoton photochemistry and photobiochemistry with ultrashort laser
pulses; The femtosecond cis-trans isomerization in vision: a classic
barrierless photochemical reaction; Vibrationally abrupt pulses in pump-probe
spectroscopy; Femtosecond phase spectroscopy
and the Kramers-Kronig relations.
