Glossary of Terms Used in Photochemistry
The "Glossary of Terms Used in Photochemistry," last published in 1996 (Pure and Applied Chemistry 1996, 68, 2223), included about 500 terms. Updating and expanding the glossary is needed since errors have been detected with respect to definitions in the IUPAC Green Book Quantities, Units, and Symbols in Physical Chemistry, published by the Physical Chemistry Division. In addition, terms related to the use of polarized light in photoinduced reactions should be included. By their very nature, glossaries need frequent updating to keep up with new terms and procedures arising from technological developments.
