A compound that goes through a photoreaction after absorbing the light and creating a reactive species is called as photoinitiator.
By combining the thiol-ene reaction with novel chemistries that he developed, Bowman has most recently demonstrated new approaches to produce crosslinked polymers with photoreaction-induced plasticity, photoreaction induced actuation, and the ability to completely eliminate stress from these systems.
In Figure 6, N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms of hydrotalcites activated at 500[degrees]C before photoreaction are shown.
Detailed structural and spectroscopic analyses of Ru complexes with different ligands are essential to investigate the kinetic process of the photoreaction. These studies provide a foundation to control NO release at the physiological target.
In the case of photoreaction over high dosage of Ti[O.sub.2]/MSB mixture, the intermediates or degradation products that remained in the suspension could still be structurally similar to the initial organic compounds.
