Photochemistry: Volume 44 (Specialist Periodical Reports #44) (Hardcover)
Reviewing photo-induced processes that have relevance to a wide ranging number of academic and commercial disciplines and interests, this volume reflects the current interests in chemistry, physics, biology and technology. Essential reading for postgraduates, academics and industrialists working in the field of photochemistry, enabling them to keep on top of the literature.
Angelo Albini is currently Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Pavia, Italy. He is active in the field of organic photochemistry, organic synthesis via radical and ions, photoinitiated reactions, mild synthetic procedures for sustainable/green chemistry, applied photochemistry (photostability of dyes, drugs, photoinduced degradation of pollutants). He has co-authored or edited four books and been the editor of the annual Specialist Periodical Reports: Photochemistry since 2008. He has also co-authored ca. 320 research articles and 40 review articles or chapters. Elisa Fasani is Associated Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Pavia. Her research activity centres on mechanistic, preparative and applied aspects of photochemistry. She has extensively studied the photochemistry and photostability of some classes of compounds of applicative interest such as dyes, pollutants and drugs. Over the last twenty years, she has had the main responsibility of the research in the photochemistry of drugs, in particular fluoroquinolone and oxazolidinone antibacterials, steroids, nitrophenyldihydropyridines. She is co-author/editor of Drugs: Photochemistry and Photostability, RSC, Cambridge, 1998, co-editor of the Specialist Periodical Reports: Photochemistry, as well as co-author of ca.130 research papers.
