Paper Abstract

Almost as soon as the properties of the laser as a light source of extraordinarily high spectral brillance became known, chemists began to speculate about its possible utility in promoting photochemical reactions with high selectivity and efficiency. Unfortunately, many of the early attempts to carry out such reactions yielded confusing results which could best be interpreted as complex thermal reactions(1). Within the past few years, however, better experiments and improved theoretical insight have revealed exciting possibilities in laser-controlled chemical reactions. We shall discuss these principles, and some examples in this presentation.
