Experiments with Light

There is a plethora of chemical experiments where the involvement of light is a central element. Some of them can be found in our daily lives and others are already used in chemistry classes, without emphasizing the involvement of light in these Experiments.

The following list doesn't make claims of being complete, but it covers a broad spectrum on technical contents and scopes for lessons in chemistry.
