UV/Vis+ Photochemistry Database

Photochemical data (EUV-VUV-UV-Vis-NIR) from published papers. Enhance your electronic resources and improve your research capabilities.

The "UV/Vis+ Photochemistry Database" is a non-profit project established in August 2000 and is subdivided into a Literature Service and a Spectra Service. The database is operated in accordance to the "Open Access" definitions and regulations of the CSPR Assessment Panel on Scientific Data and Information (International Council for Science, 2004, ICSU Report of the CSPR Assessment Panel on Data and Information).

The Literature Service provides datasheets with metadata such as publication, authors, source, wavelength range, temperature, pressure, phase etc. The Spectra Service provides in addition the spectral data in digital form, graphical representations and additional photochemical information.

An outline regarding the structure and content of the database is published in UV/Vis+ Photochemistry Database: Structure, Content and Applications (Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer, 253, 107056, 2020, Open Access).

Our initiative "Share Photochemical Data, Find Answers" should develop the photochemical database towards a photochemical data sharing platform.
