Description 1 online resource (xxvi, 313 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Contents Artificial Photosynthesis; Foreword; Preface; Contents; List of Contributors; Part I The Context; 1 Artificial Photosynthesis: Social and Political Issues; 2 An Integrated Artificial Photosynthesis Model; Part II Capturing Sunlight; 3 Broadband Photon-harvesting Biomolecules for Photovoltaics; 4 The Design of Natural Photosynthetic Antenna Systems; 5 Identifying Redox-active Chromophores in Photosystem II by Low-temperature Optical Spectroscopies; 6 The Nature of the Special-pair Radical Cation Produced by Primary Charge Separation During Photosynthesis
Summary Since the events crucial to plant photosynthesis are now known in molecular detail, this process is no longer nature's secret, but can for the first time be mimicked by technology. Broad in its scope, this book spans the basics of biological photosynthesis right up to the current approaches for its technical exploitation, making it the most complete resource on artificial photosynthesis ever published. The contents draw on the expertise of the Australian Artificial Photosynthesis Network, currently the world's largest coordinated research effort to develop effective photosynthesis technology
