This is an advanced cause of photochemical reactions. The students are required basic knowledge of photochemistry. Photochemistry, photochemical reactions, and photocatalysis of metal complexes are mainly lectured.
The students should learn high level of knowledge of photochemistry, photochemical reactions, and photocatalysis of metal complexes.

The teacher give lectures by using prints which are distributed in the class and a whiteboard. Questions from students are welcome in the class. The teacher gives many questions to the students. The students are requested to review.
|Course schedule||Required learning|
|Class 1||basic photochemistry||review of basic knowledges on photochemistry|
|Class 2||photophysical processes||color of molecules, electronic transition, emission, lifetime of excited states|
|Class 3||excited states and photochemical reactions of metal complexes 1||MC transition, LC transition, CT transition、photochemical ligand substitution, atom abstraction|
|Class 4||excited states and photochemical reactions of metal complexes 2||energy transfer, electron transfer|
|Class 5||metal-complex photocatalysts 1||quenching process, electron transfer, redox photosensitized reactions|
|Class 6||metal-complex photocatalysts 2||atom transfer, hydride transfer|
|Class 7||New photofunctional molecules||upconversion, thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF)|
|Class 8||examination||Your basic knowledges will be examined.|
To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 30 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
