Paper Abstract

Consideration of viable commercial ventures involving laser chemistry must take into account not only the cost structure of the laser production step but must also consider all other steps in the venture through to provisions of goods or services to clients. Recent work on the two-stage infrared laser isotope separation of carbon-13 and the selective wavelength synthesis of vitamin-D is reviewed. The processes, which may be viewed as surrogates for direct carbon dioxide and excimer laser driven synthetic schemes, are discussed in terms of their technical description and the business opportunity they present.
