The course will involve a discussion of molecular organic photochemistry and pericyclic reactions. Initially, we will study in brief the fundamental principles of photochemistry. In the following lectures we will discuss the primary photochemical reactions of n,π*states.

In the second half of our course we will be focusing on the primary photochemical reactions of π,π*states where we will discuss in detail about the pericyclic reactions. We will end our course by studying some important applications of photochemistry.

No.
