What happens when matter interacts with light? Quite often matter absorbs light. It is then that Photochemistry, a sub-discipline of Chemistry, gets into action. Photochemists try to find answer to questions such as:
The interaction of light with matter underlies a large number of natural phenomena, for example photosynthesis, the mechanism of vision, the tanning of our skin or, unfortunately, generation of skin cancer.
Here you will find some recent research results in the field of Photochemistry worked out in the frame of e-knownet project. Selected "hot issues" from the up-to-date research are transformed into learning modules, called "Digital Exhibits", making use of innovative web technology.
The work was carried out under the auspices of the European Photochemistry Association (http://www.photochemistry.eu).
