The Photoreactivity and Photoproduct Distribution of Conjugated Trienes |

Rekha, in Journal of Advances in Science and Technology | Science & Technology


Asurvey is given of various factors and conditions that affect thephotoreactivity and photoproduct distribution of conjugated trienes, such asground-state rotameric equilibrium, non-planarity of the chromophore,wavelength of irradiation, solvent and temperature. The effect of changes inground-state conformation and geometry, caused by substitution or variation ofsolvent or temperature, usually appears to be more important and more easilypredictable than excited state effects.
