Paper Abstract

Infrared spectroscopy is an excellent tool for examining the functional group changes occurring during photochemical reactions. Historically, this has been done by monitoring a single infrared wavelength during the irradiation. The development of interferometer hardware and software for rapid scanning and "on the fly" GC-IR have produced equipment equally applicable to the study of any time-dependant phenomenon where the requisite temporal resolution is .5 seconds or longer. We have used FT-IR spectroscopy to study several liquid and solid phase photochemical systems using both transmission and diffuse reflectance techniques. The multiplex nature of the experiment allows the simultaneous monitoring of any number of infrared frequencies related to products, reactants or intermediates.
