I developed a synthesis of an unstable molecule that undergoes cleavage when exposed to light. Laurie Butler, in her lab at the University of Chicago, studied the rate of decay/bond dissociation for this molecule. It serves as a model for bond dissociation processes that occur with pollutant molecules in the upper atmosphere. --author-supplied description
