About the book
Photochemistry and Photophysics” (P&P) are an integral part of our daily life; starting from naturalprocesses like photosynthesis, photochemical reactions in the atmosphere to photoinduced reactions in retinas of our eyes which generates a vision, it rules everywhere. That’s why P&P is as old as our world and shall prevail as a central branch of science in the coming days. The topic is vast as it starts from the interaction between light and matter and spreads over various disciplines of core sciences, such as chemistry, physics, material science, biology, and so on. At present, from the application in medicine (e.g., photodynamic therapy) to various materials-based devices (such as solar cells) exploit P&P immensely. In continuation of our effort to have better understanding and as well as to keep in pace with the recent development in this ever-growing field, we would like to focus in this proposed book entitled “Photochemistry and Photophysics: Recent Advances” as follows: i) fundamentals of P&P starting from the light-matter interactions, ii) P&P of molecules to supramolecules and metal complexes, iii) Photochemistry in atmosphere, iv) Recent developments in techniques to study the photophysical processes, iv) Modern synthetic photochemistry, v) Recent development in State of the Art techniques to identify the intermediates of photochemical reactions, vi) Photophysics of Carbon Dots, Nanotubes, Perovskite Materials, vii) photophysics happening in lasing materials, plasmonic organic solar cells, and nevertheless in viii) applications of P&P in various fields.
