Discover the exciting, promising field of molecular levelartificial photosynthesisThis special volume of Progress in Inorganic Chemistry presents thetheory and practice of molecular artificial photosynthesis-a fieldholding tremendous promise now that molecular solar energymaterials are fast becoming competitive with their solid-statecounterparts.The only book on the market to address this important area ofinorganic research, Molecular Level Artificial PhotosyntheticMaterials shows us, in effect, how to imitate the complex naturalprocesses of photosynthesis-featuring state-of-the-art strategiesand techniques for creating artificial photosynthetic devices atthe molecular level. It takes a multidisciplinary approach, drawingon materials science techniques used in the design of solar energydevices, examining the molecular nature of the chemistry involved,and applying existing knowledge in inorganic photochemistry andphotophysics to the growing pool of molecular photonicmaterials.Composed of seven superbly crafted contributions by leading expertsin the field, this comprehensive work* Describes molecular components integrated within nanophasematerials, gels, zeolites, thin films, and layered solids* Uses novel time resolved vibrational spectroscopies to elucidatefundamental electron and energy transfer mechanisms in complexsupramolecular compounds* Highlights practical applications such as the conversion of lightinto electricity, solar detoxification of pollutants, and theproduction of useful fuels-including the splitting of water intohydrogen and oxygen* Points to areas of future research and usefulness for inorganicphotochemists, as well as for students, chemists, materialscientists, physicists, and engineers in a wide range of fields
