Glossary of Terms
Used in Photochemistry
The "Glossary of Terms Used
in Photochemistry," last published in 1996 (Pure and Applied
Chemistry 1996, 68, 2223), included about 500 terms. Updating
and expanding the glossary is needed since errors have been
detected with respect to definitions in the IUPAC Green Book
Quantities, Units, and Symbols in Physical Chemistry,
published by the Physical Chemistry Division. In addition,
terms related to the use of polarized light in photoinduced
reactions should be included. By their very nature, glossaries
need frequent updating to keep up with new terms and procedures
arising from technological developments.
