  • Atmospheric chemistry—Addresses, essays, lectures


Photoassisted reactions involving doped metal oxide semiconductor powders are reviewed. The mechanisms, insofar as they are now understood, are discussed for several reactions involving gas-phase water near its equilibrium vapor pressure in contact with the oxide. Experimental results are presented along with some discussion of how these processes may be involved in heterogeneous processes in the atmosphere.
