Fast Radiation-Induced Processes in Micellar Assemblies

Part of the The IBM Research Symposia Series book series (IRSS)


Laser photolysis and pulse radiolysis techniques are employed to unravel specific effects exerted by micellar aggregates on the rate of fast redox processes. These comprise the reduction of dimensionality in reaction space in radical decay kinetics and the kinetic control of photo redox reactions. In the latter type of process micelles, in particular functional surfactant assemblies, may be used to achieve light-induced charge separation and conversion of light into chemical energy.
