Abstract

Realisation that free radicals and atoms take part in chemical reactions has focussed attention on the process of photochemistry which is not only paramount in the geochemistry of the upper atmosphere but is also basic to many reactions of organic chemistry involving free radicals and the triplet state; this realisation also has led to the development of gas lasers, and to the exploration in detail of the intimate anatomy of reactions of pyrolysis, combustion and explosion.
