Baker, Lewis A.;
  • Subject: Q1 | QC | QD

This thesis focusses on two areas. The first is elucidating the ultrafast photoprotective mechanisms exhibited by a number of commercial and natural sunscreening agents, through the use of femtosecond pump-probe transient absorption spectroscopy, coupled with ab initio ... View more
