Chemistry

Photochemical reations (reactions that use light) are unique. In certain cases, reactions that are more dilute are more rapid than those that are more concentrated. Suggest an explanation for this observation.


As the concentration of the photolyzed compound increases, eventually the light is absorbed at the front edge of the mixture only, where the light enters. Most of the sample then does not "see" the radiation and does not react.
