The third volume in the Molecular and Supramolecular Photochemistry series focuses on organic molecular photochemistry. This volume presents six chapters in the general area of photochemical and photophysical studies of organic mole- molecules. Although the thrust of the individual chapters vary, each deals with the excited-state behavior of organic molecules in their molecular form. Tremendous activity in photochemical studies over the past 40 years has resulted in a reasonable understanding of the photobehavior of a large number of organic molecules, in the discovery of innumerable reactions, and in establish- establishing the basic mechanistic framework for a large number of photoreactions. Such a rapid development has resulted in photoscience becoming a tool in the hands of chemists who want to exploit light for useful ends. Because of this, there is a need to periodically consolidate and critically evaluate the information that becomes available through the tireless efforts of our colleagues. The Molecular and Supramolecular Photochemistry series aims to serve this role.
