Flash photolysis is a technique for investigating very fast chemical reactions (see chemical kinetics). A very intense flash of light of very short duration (from a laser or flash lamp) is passed through a reaction mixture, usually gaseous. Instant dissociation occurs, producing free radicals, whose subsequent fast reactions are followed by automatic spectroscopy.
