Photochemical reactions are very important in many areas of chemistry with applications including photodynamic therapy and solar energy harvesting. These reactions often proceed quickly and as a result require fast reaction techniques to analyse. The Vernier Flash Photolysis Spectrometer is a simple, user-friendly transient absorption spectrometer. It is useful for demonstrating the fundamental principles of these types of fast, photo-catalysed reactions. Some experiment ideas include kinetics of photochemical reactions such as
Excited-state dynamics
Triplet-decay analysis
Time-resolved phosphorescence
Phosphorescence-quenching kinetics
Reactive free radicals

Spectral coverage: 450750nm
Temporal resolution: 100 microseconds
Spectral Resolution: Determined by the interference filter used (10nm with the included 600nm interference filter)
Minimum time window: 15 milliseconds

The user manual contains two experiments:
Isomerization of Mercury Dithizonate
Base Catalysis of the cis-trans Isomerization of Congo Red
