The PhotochemCAD™ program contains modules for performing calculations, a database of absorption and emission spectra for 150 diverse compounds, a database of solar spectra, and extensive literature references. We developed PhotochemCAD™ for use as a computer-aided research and teaching tool in photochemistry. This not-for-profit effort is aimed at advancing the science of photochemistry, and is fully described in the following journal articles:
"PhotochemCAD. A Computer-Aided Design and Research Tool in Photochemistry and Photobiology," Du, H.; Fuh, R.-C. A.; Li, J.; Corkan, L. A.; Lindsey, J. S. Photochem. Photobiol. 1998, 68, 141-142.
"PhotochemCAD 2. A Refined Program with Accompanying Spectral Databases for Photochemical Calculations," Dixon, J. M.; Taniguchi, M.; Lindsey, J. S. Photochem. Photobiol. 2005, 81, 212-213.
The current version of PhotochemCAD™ is Version 2.1 (03/06/2009).
