Abstract

Mechanism of direct UVC photolysis of dibenzazepine-type drug imipramine (IMI) was revealed by the combination of laser flash photolysis for the detection of short lived intermediates and steady-state photolysis coupled with LC-MS for identification of final products. Both quantum yield of IMI photoionization and molar absorption coefficient of IMI radical cation were determined for the first time.
