Issue 12 of Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences is now available to read online.
The front cover this month features work by Claire Richard and co-authors from Clermont-Ferrand, France. In their work they investigate the photolysis of cycloxydim (CD) in acetonitrile and water, and show that the intramolecular hydrogen bond in cycloxydim suppresses the photoisomerization and increases the reactivity through H abstraction of the iminyl radical.
