ISL's seminar given by Ally Aukauloo (ICMMO, Université Paris-Saclay), on Thursday 16 February 2023 at 11.00am in the Auditorium of the Institut d'Optique in Palaiseau (in hybrid face-to-face / remote mode), on the topic: "Artificial photosynthesis."
Abstract: "Photosynthesis is the process that uses sunlight as sole energy input to flush carbon dioxide (CO2) from our atmosphere and convert it into a chemical energy vector. Chemists worldwide are devoting much effort to develop advanced materials that can capture light to activate and transform very stable molecules i.e., water and carbon dioxide, the key ingredients,
into energy rich molecules. I will discuss on the three aspects of Capturing photons, Converting them into a chemical potential and performing multi-electron Catalysis, the three Cs of Artificial Photosynthesis research."
