Title: Chemical actinometry

Updating the document on "Chemical Actinometry" published in Pure
Appl. Chem. 61(2), 187-210, 1989 and extending its coverage
to solid state systems and to near-UV radiation.
The document on "Chemical Actinometry" has been very well received
by the photochemical community. The original publication in 1989
has been referred to 72 times according to the WEB of Science. There
is a need to extend the coverage to the solid state, expand the
gas phase systems and cover in more detail the near-UV radiation
region, in view of the renewed interest on research in this area,
due to environmental reasons. A search of the literature from 1989
to 2000 reveals that a series of publications in the field have
appeared in these areas. A critical assessment of the actinometers
should also be included.
As of June 2004, a final draft was submitted for publication.
