Dye molecules are complex organic molecules which might carry charge centers and are thus prone to absorption changes in various media. These changes are important to understand various physical-organic reactions of these macromolecules which have become important in different fields of pure and applied chemistry such as synthetic chemistry, extraction of dyes from solution, photodynamic therapy, and chelation processes. This volume examines dyes in chemical interaction and production of drugs for pharmaceutical use as well as in forensic work and in the production of materials.

About the Authors / Editors:
Editors: Harold H. Trimm, PhD
Chairman, Chemistry Department, Broome Community College
Adjunct Analytical Professor, Binghamton University, State University of New York, Binghamton, USA


Dr. Harold H. Trimm was born in 1955 in Brooklyn, New York. Dr. Trimm is the chairman of the Chemistry Department at Broome Community College in Binghamton, New York. In addition, he is an Adjunct Analytical Professor, Binghamton University, State University of New York, Binghamton, New York.
He received his PhD in chemistry, with a minor in biology, from Clarkson University in 1981 for his work on fast reaction kinetics of biologically important molecules. He then went on to Brunel University in England for a postdoctoral research fellowship in biophysics, where he studied the molecules involved with arthritis by electroptics. He recently authored a textbook on forensic science titled Forensics the Easy Way (2005).
