Chemical reactions under the influence of light.

The photochemistry is the field of chemistry, which deals with the effect of electromagnetic radiation in the form of light or photons to chemical molecules, reactions or systems.

Photochemical reactions are common and are used not only in special chemical syntheses that run under the effect of light differently than, for example, the indexed by heat.

In nature, there are a number of light excited photochemical reactions such as photosynthesis, bioluminescence or photo degradation etc. Special herbal substances react only by exposure to light and thus develop their phototoxic potential.

On photochemical principles based the analogous photography. More recently, the photochemically active organic semiconductors are gaining in importance for various applications (organic light, solar cells, etc.).

The following directory lists online available information on photochemistry and photochemical reactions.
