Abstract : Five areas of research are covered: (1) the mechanism of production of electronically excited states by gamma rays, (2) the properties of polar fluorescent exciplexes, (3) nonradiative decay processes in the quenching of excited states, (4) some studies of the kinetics of decay of free radicals produced photochemically, and (5) some of our early work in the photochemistry of organometallic compounds.
