UVA irradiation (320–400 nm) comprises about 95 percent of incident midday solar ultraviolet irradiation. It penetrates skin much deeper than UVB irradiation. The absorption of UVA irradiation in endogenous chromophores frequently leads to the generation of reactive oxygen species such as singlet oxygen (1O2). 1O2 is an important biochemical intermediate in multiple biological processes. Beside ...
