The photochemical production of free radicals, molecular ions, and other highly reactive species, their trapping in rare-gas solids for studies of their vibrational and electronic spectra, and the use of secondary photolysis for product identification are surveyed. The application of gas-phase thermodynamic and spectroscopic data in planning and interpreting the experiments is emphasized and illustrated.
