About this Textbook

This book offers an introduction to photochemistry for students with a minimal background in physical chemistry and molecular quantum mechanics. The focus is from a theoretical perspective and highlights excited state dynamics. The authors, experienced lecturers, describe the main concepts in photochemical and photophysical processes that are used as a basis to interpret classical steady-state experimental results (essentially product branching ratios and quantum yields) and the most advanced time-resolved techniques. A significant portion of the content is devoted to the computational techniques present in quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics.With its short summaries, questions and exercises, this book is aimed at graduate students, while its theoretical focus differentiates it from most introductory textbooks on photochemistry.

About the authors

Maurizio Persico received his Masters in Chemistry from the University of Pisa, Italy in 1976. He spent one year as a post-doc at the Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin and was a Research Assistant at Scuola Normale Superiore from 1982 to 1987. In 1987 he became Associate Professor and in 2000 Full Professor, at the University of Pisa. His main research interest is in the theory and computational simulation of the dynamics of molecular excited states.
Giovanni Granucci graduated and obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Pisa in 1996. After postdoctoral work at the Ecole Normale Superieure and the CEA in Paris, he became a Research Assistant at the University of Pisa. His main research interest is in the computational study of molecular excited state dynamics. He is a co-author of circa 70 scientific publications.
