Abstract : A brief review of the author's research is presented. Part of the investigation studied the chemical response to ultraviolet radiation of several small ring heterocyclic systems. The phototransformations of beta, gamma-epoxy ketones, dibenzoylstilbene episulfides, arylaroylazetidines, cyclopentyl phenyl ketone, and alpha-diazoacetophenone were examined in mechanistic detail. Photosensitization, quenching, and emission studies were performed in order to describe the excited states involved in these photoreactions as well as to provide for a better understanding of the mechanism of these transformations.
