Photochemistry is the part of science concerned with the chemical effects of light. Commonly, this term is used to explain a chemical reaction caused by absorption of ultraviolet (wavelength from 100 to 400 nm), visible light (400–750 nm) or infrared radiation (750–2500 nm)
In nature, photochemistry has huge importance as it is the basis of photosynthesis, vision, and the synthesis of vitamin D with sunlight. Photochemical reactions continue uniquely in contrast to temperature-driven reactions. Photochemical paths access high energy intermediates that cannot be produced thermally, thereby overcoming large activation barriers in a short period of time, and allowing reactions otherwise inaccessible by thermal processes. Photochemistry is also destructive, as illustrated by the photodegradation of plastics.
