Subcommittee on Photochemistry


  • renewable energy sources
  • green chemistry
  • atmospheric photochemistry
  • new analytical methods in the biosciences including trace analysis of proteins, nucleic acids, and small bioregulators, both in vivo and in vitro
  • industrial photochemistry
  • advanced spectroscopic methods in ultra-fast time and ultra-small space resolution
  • methods for identifying material fatigue and temporal changes

The Subcommittee will work in close contact with the three major Photochemical Societies of the world, i.e., the Inter-American Photochemical Society, IAPS, The European Photochemistry Association, EPA, and the Japanese Photochemistry Association (JPA).


Implementation of the overall goals and objectives of IUPAC in the multidisciplinary area of photochemistry and its links to the photosciences (e. g., materials sciences, photobiology, photolithography, photography) can be accomplished only with the inputs of a broad spectrum of experts in the field, including those with ancillary interests in areas covered by all Divisions within IUPAC:
