Summary "Since the first report on solar fuels production by Fujishima and Honda in 1972, photoelectrochemical/electrochemical production of fuels, such as H2, carbonhydrates, etc., has significantly advanced over the past few decades with the remarkable development in new catalytic materials, fundamental knowledge, and new applications. In particular, the efficiency for solar fuels production steadily increases, for example, solar H2 production efficiency has reached 1.1% in term of the solar-to-hydrogen energy conversion efficiency. These progresses render solar fuels as promising candidates for use in modern technology. In the book Artificial Photosynthesis: From Materials to Devices, experts in the photoelectrochemical/electrochemical field discuss new catalytic materials as well as their photophysical properties and applications for artificial photosynthesis. This book covers the topical research in artificial photosynthesis from conventional particulate catalysts and porous/2D materials to the cutting-edge use of these materials in device fabrication for photoelectrochemistry and electrochemistry, as well as theoretical studies. In terms of applications, this book centers on CO2 photoreduction to valuable carbohydrates and water dissociation into high energy density H2. Throughout the book, examples and illustrations of applications are chosen to help the readers comprehend the achievements and trends in this rapidly evolving field. This book also provides the state-of-the-art research techniques in artificial photosynthesis. This book is informative and helpful for researchers, graduates, and advanced undergraduates interested in the CO2 reduction and water splitting and will assist them to quickly appreciate the research progresses in this field"-- Provided by publisher
