Abstract: This mini-review evaluates deactivation processes of iron-containing species and substances in solutions and the solid state with the focus on radiation deactivations from their electronically excited states. Theoretical and practical aspects of luminescence are assessed and conclusions based on up-to-date experimental data are formulated.

Keywords: iron compounds, luminescence, nonradiative deactivations, photochemistry
