This volume encompasses photoeffects of coordination chemistry, if the latter term is given its generalized meaning. Choices have been made in the interests of both coherence and timeliness, and those
aspects of inorganic photochemistry that have experienced the most rapid growth in the last two decades are treated. This book, containing as it does contributions by leaders in the field under the supervision of
editors who are active in the field, will do much to stimulate research both in the basic aspects of the subject and in the applications of the basic knowledge.
