The study of the photochemistry and photophysics of octahedral and pseudo-octahedral Cr(III) complexes has a rich history. An initial discussion is devoted to a general appraisal of the state of these two subjects up to December 1998, after providing a framework of state energy levels and radiative and non-radiative relaxation processes relevant to Cr(III) systems. The remaining sections cover some of the more active areas in the Cr(III) field, such as ultrafast dynamics, photosubstitution, thermally activated excited state relaxation, energy transfer, and photoactivated redox processes (both intermolecular and intramolecular). Each of these sections begins with an overview of the subject area, and then one or more representative papers from the recent literature are selected for more detailed discussion.
