Title: Chemical actinometry

Task Group
: S.E. Braslavsky

Members: H.J. Kuhn and R. Schmidt

Completion Date: 2004 - project completed

Updating the document on "Chemical Actinometry" published in Pure Appl. Chem. 61(2), 187-210, 1989 and extending its coverage to solid state systems and to near-UV radiation.

The document on "Chemical Actinometry" has been very well received by the photochemical community. The original publication in 1989 has been referred to 72 times according to the WEB of Science. There is a need to extend the coverage to the solid state, expand the gas phase systems and cover in more detail the near-UV radiation region, in view of the renewed interest on research in this area, due to environmental reasons. A search of the literature from 1989 to 2000 reveals that a series of publications in the field have appeared in these areas. A critical assessment of the actinometers should also be included.

This project was presented at a poster session at the IUPAC Congress/GA July 2005
