Reviews some recent progress in vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) photochemistry and photophysics research covering the primary and secondary processes induced by the absorption of VUV photons. Upon absorption of a VUV photon, competition may take place between ionization, dissociative ionization, fluorescence, and neutral dissociation. The experimental techniques for probing these channels include: photoionization mass spectrometry, photoelectron spectroscopy, dispersed fluorescence detection, and various coincidence schemes. The authors of the 11 chapters of this monograph are among the most active researchers in their respective areas. Acidic paper.
