The article presents information on the application of synchrotron radiation in chemistry. Synchrotron radiation has developed during the last 20 years from a waste product of high-energy physics to a unique excitation radiation source for diverse methods, which in the broadest sense are based on the interaction of electro magnetic radiation with matter. The basis is the broad continuous spectrum from infrared to the hard X-ray field, the very high intensity of radiation which is not achievable otherwise, its polarization of almost 100, and the interesting time structure.
