This interdisciplinary book focuses on the various aspects transformation of the energy from sunlight into the chemical bonds of a fuel, known as the artificial photosynthesis, and addresses the emergent challenges connected with growing societal demands for clean and sustainable energy technologies. The editors assemble the research of world-recognized experts in the field of both molecular and materials artificial systems for energy production. Contributors cover the full scope of research on photosynthesis and related energy processes.
Dr. Elena A. Rozhkova, Ph.D. is a Scientist and a Principal Investigator at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), USA. Rozhkova's major research interests include nanoscience and nanotechnology for clean energy, bio-inspired catalysis, complex energy gradients in biology and at the nano-bio interf...
