One of the most promising technologies for solving the global environmental problems, artificial photosynthesis has seen many breakthroughs in various challenging approaches in recent years. Within decades, artificial photosynthesis can be expected to provide one of the most likely and realistic options to address the energy needs of society. This Faraday Discussion brings together current understanding of this rapidly advancing field. The book incorporates biological approaches, fundamental processes, molecular catalysts, visible light responsive semiconductor catalysts and inorganic assembly catalysts.
Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2014) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 4.606.
