The only combined organic photochemistry and photobiology handbook

As spectroscopic, synthetic and biological tools become more and more sophisticated, photochemistry and photobiology are merging—making interdisciplinary research essential. Following in the footsteps of its bestselling predecessors, the CRC Handbook of Organic Photochemistry and Photobiology, Third Edition has evolved into a state-of-the-art collection on modern aspects of photochemistry and photobiology.

A compilation 67 of topical reviews by leading experts, this compilation provides cutting-edge information on the applications of photochemical and photobiological principles, techniques, and methodologies.

New and updated topics in this edition include

  • Industrial photochemistry
  • Photocatalyic water splitting
  • Photocatalysis
  • Photostability of drugs
