This new volume continues the tradition of the 'Chemistry for the 21st Century' Series in exploring areas of active research in chemistry today which are likely to have a profound effect on the science of chemistry in the future. Lasers have had, and will have, a positive impact on chemistry with the short pulse width of the laser enabling chemists to measure the primary processes of important chemical changes. This use of lasers to measure ultrafast processes in chemistry and photobiology is one of the most active as well as one of the most fundamental field of research. This volume presents expert contributions summarizing the state-of-the-art in this most important area.
