PhotochemCAD™ is a program of calculational modules and accompanying database of spectra aimed at advancing the photosciences. A streamlined version of the same database of spectra can now be viewed on our new website. The user is directed to the following journal articles for full description of the program and database:
  1. PhotochemCAD 3: Diverse Modules for Photophysical Calculations with Access to Multiple Spectral Databases,” Taniguchi, M.; Du, H.; Lindsey, J. S. Photochem. Photobiol. 2018, 94, 277–289. – describes the overall organization of the program and provides a complete description of each module, including the formulas for all calculations.
  2. Database of Absorption and Fluorescence Spectra of >300 Common Compounds for Use in PhotochemCAD,” Taniguchi, M.; Lindsey, J. S. Photochem. Photobiol. 2018, 94, 290–327. – provides literature data for each spectrum including 720 references in total to the original scholarly literature.
PhotochemCAD™ 3 (program and database) are now available for free downloading.
