Glossary of Terms Used in Photocatalysis and Radiocatalysis
This glossary of terms covers phenomena considered under the very wide terms “photocatalysis” and ”radiocatalysis” or ”radiation catalysis.” A clear distinction is made between phenomena related to either photochemistry and photocatalysis or radiation chemistry and radiocatalysis. Consistent definitions are given of terms in these areas, as well as definitions of the most important parameters used for the quantitative description of these phenomena. Terms related to the up-scaling of photocatalytic processes for industrial applications have been included. This Glossary should be used together with the “Glossary of Terms used in Photochemistry,” 3rd version, IUPAC Recommendations 2006: as well as with the IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology, 2nd edition (the “Gold Book”) because many terms used in photocatalysis are defined in these documents.
