For quantitative studies of photochemical reactions with low quantum yields the paper suggests application of polychromatic radiation sources whose overall intensity is by orders higher than that of currently available monochromatic sources. The more complicated and laborious calculation methods suggested for treatment of the experimental data can be solved by usual numerical procedures.
