Updating and expanding the "Glossary of Terms used in Photochemistry
" published in Pure
1996, 68, 2223.
The "Glossary of Terms used in Photochemistry" as published in 1996
(which already included ca. 500 terms) needs updating since errors
have been detected with respect to definitions in the 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 abreast
of new terms and procedures arising from technological developments.
A manuscript is being prepared for publication in Pure Appl.
Chem. In Nov 2005, a provisional document was submitted to public
review comments (until 31 March 2006).
> provisional recommendations
Nov 2006: A revised document was finalized and submitted
for publication in Pure Appl. Chem.
