## Photophysics and photochemistry of 4-Dihydropyridinones

### In: Photochemistry & Photobiology, 1990, vol. 52, no. 2, p. 283-292

Dihydropyridinones (DHP) react photochemically with olefins to form cycloaddition products. The reactions proceed through the lowest excited state T, of the DHPs, with rate constants which depend on the olefin and can approach the diffusional limit in the most favourable cases. Intra- and inter-molecular sensitization and quenching have been investigated, as well as spectroscopic properties such... More
