Supramolecular organic and inorganic photochemistry: Radical pair recombination in micelles, electron transfer on starburst dendrimers, and the use of DNA as a molecular wire

Turro, Nicholas J.

Supramolecular chemistry is concerned with systems for which noncovalent interactions become significant or dominate in determining the chemistry of the guedhost systems. Supramolecular photochemistry is concerned with systems where non-covalent interactions become significant or dominate in determining the observed photochemistry. The supramolecular photochemistry of ketones adsorbed in micelles and of metal complexes adsorbed on starburst dendrimers and DNA is the subject of this report.
