Light induced reactions in cryogenic matrices

This chapter deals with light induced reactions in cryogenic matrices. Photochemical reactions induced by UV/visible irradiation of matrix isolated organic compounds, ranging from conformational isomerizations to complex bond-breaking/bond-forming processes, will be addressed. The effects of the media on the chemical processes, including direct participation of the matrix noble gas as a reactant to form novel covalently bound noble gas containing molecules, will also be discussed. Finally, (N)IR induced reactions in cryomatrices will be considered, as well as intramolecular vibrational energy relaxation/redistribution processes involved in these reactions.
