flash photolysis

[′flash fə‚täl·ə·səs]
(physical chemistry)
A method of studying fast photochemical reactions in gas molecules; a powerful lamp is discharged in microsecond flashes near a reaction vessel holding the gas, and the products formed by the flash are observed spectroscopically.

The triplet states of BPBnzx in a degassed solution of acetonitrile were investigated by laser flash photolysis.
Laser Flash Photolysis results also supported the idea that the initiation mechanism of BPBnzx is based on intermolecular hydrogen abstraction; the incident light is absorbed by the BP part of BPBnzx and hydrogen abstraction occurred from the Bnzx unit and the resulting [alpha]-aminoalkyl radical initiates the polymerization of MMA.
