With the advance of lasers that could generate mild eleven 14 pulses starting from 10- - 10- sec period, and able to thirteen top powers in far more than 10 watts scientists were capable of examine the interactions of sunshine with subject in a time and gear area no longer formerly attainable. those ultrashort laser pulses supply a strong device for the research of chemical phenomena on the such a lot primary point. a few of the ordinary strategies of value in chemistry together with strength dissipa tion, molecular motions, structural and chemical alterations ensue on a truly few minutes scale and therefore require distinctive methods. Th~ use of ultrashort laser pulses to perturb and to probe platforms of curiosity offers an immediate method of the time reso lution of very swift chemical phenomena. It used to be attractiveness of the influence of those quite new techniques to chemical phenomena that influenced NATO to sponsor a gathering at the purposes of picosecond spectroscopy in chemistry. the first goal of the NATO workshop was once to achieve a few standpoint at the prestige of the sector when it comes to current study actions, technological advancements and if attainable the tough job of sensing destiny instructions. the best way we determined to process those matters was once to collect jointly the most participants to the sector, thankfully a lot of whom have been capable of attend, to provide their paintings and to take part in what became out to be energetic discussions of the field.

Although the chemistry of the low-lying electronic states 'DPC and 'DPC have been extensively studied, the chemistry of the higher states remains unknown in large p~rt due to the reactivity of the thermally accessible singlet and ground triplet states. We note that Scheme 2 predicts that the excited triplet should undergo certain reactions that the ground triplet would not. , with alcohols. DPC was generated by UV laser_~rradiation of the precursor molecule diphenyldiazomethane (10 M) in a degassed acetonitrile solution.
These results suggested the intermediacy of a 1;4 biradica1 species whose lifetime allowed for the free rotation about one of the terminal bonds. Despite the success of the biradica1 intermediate hypothesis there are a number of pieces of evidence which intimated a more complicated picture of the reaction profile. Results of isotope studies have been interpreted as evidence against rate limiting formation of a 1,4 biradica1 3 . The exceptions to the most stable biradica1 rule have been troublesome to explain in a consistent manner 4 .
