Abstract
The effect of the irradiation intensity on the kinetics of provitamin D photoisomerization was studied by picosecond laser excitation. The changes in reaction kinetics were revealed as the intensity of laser irradiation increased from 1012 up to 2. 5 x 1014 W/m2 and model calculations gave evidence that there changes were due to the significant reduction of side product tachysterol formation. We attribute there observations to the excitation of provitamin being in non-equilibrium conformational distribution. The results obtained are believed to provide challenging possibilities for the control of photoproducts in triene photochemistry. 1.
