Abstract : Results of a study of photophysical properties and mechanisms of photodegradation of coumarin dyes are summarized. Discussion includes effects of polar media on dye emission yield and lifetime, solubilization of dyes in water with surfactants, products of dye photodegradation, electron transfer properties of coumarin dyes, mechanisms of dye photodecomposition, and recommendations of restorative procedures for dye media.
