This graduate-level text provides a non-mathematical introduction to electronic excitation in organic molecules and their spectroscopy, photophysics and photochemistry. The practical application of theory is illustrated through numerous worked examples. Simple qualitative models, such as the perimeter model, are used to describe the nature of electronic states and this book reveals how these states are probed by spectroscopy with ordinary and polarized light, including natural and magnetic circular dichroism. The concept of potential energy surfaces is emphasized in discussing the photophysical processes and photochemical reactions that follow excitation. Particular attention is paid to the behaviour of molecules at biradicaloid geometries and spin-out orbit coupling in biradicals.

From the Publisher:

This volume provides a non-mathematical introduction to electronic excitation in organic molecules and offers an integrated view of the principles of electronic spectroscopy, photophysics, and photochemistry. This is the first book to incorporate recent advances in understanding the role of conical intersections in photochemical and photophysical processes. Throughout the book, the concepts of potential energy surfaces, bonding theory, molecular electronic structure, and their relationship to the understanding of photochemistry are emphasized. Simple and initiative qualitative models are used to explain how electronic structures may be probed with ordinary and polarized light. Every chapter contains extensive references and worked examples to illustrate practical applications of the theories presented.

Excited States and Photochemistry of Organic Molecules Martin Klessinger Josef Michl This book provides a non-mathematical introduction to electronic excitation in organic molecules, and offers an integrated view of the principles of electronic spectroscopy, photophysics, and photochemistry. This is the first book to incorporate recent advances in understanding the role of conical intersections in photochemical and photophysical processes. Throughout the book, the concepts of potential energy surfaces, bonding theory, and molecular electronic structure in the understanding of photochemistry are emphasized. Simple and intuitive qualitative models for the nature of electronic states are used to explain how electronic structure can be probed by spectroscopy with ordinary and polarized light, including natural and magnetic circular dichroism. Every chapter includes worked examples that illustrate practical applications of theory, as well as extensive references to the original literature. Excited States and Photochemistry of Organic Molecules is suitable for use as a text for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physical organic chemistry and photochemistry.
