Filling the gap on the market for comprehensive coverage of this versatile class of compounds, the scope of this monograph ranges from preparation and modern methods of investigation, via chemical and photochemical reactions, photochronism and nonlinear effects, to stilbenes as bases for optical and measuring instruments, applications in industry, biochemistry and biomedicine, and as fluorescence–photochrome biophysical labels.

Invaluable for molecular biologists, materials scientists and cell biologists, as well as catalytic, organic, biomedical and clinical chemists, and those working with/on organometallics.
