There is a growing conviction that the only real prospect for our long-term energy provision relies on the ability to collect and store sunlight in the form of chemical potential. This topical and important area of science covers many disciplines. The combination of biology, chemistry, physics and theory makes for an exciting

Artificial Photosynthesis: Faraday Discussion 155
5 - 7 September 2011
University of Edinburgh, UK

The aim of this meeting is to focus on possible solutions to long-standing problems in the development of artificial synthesis. These answers will not be easy to find and some highly innovative research is called for. Considerable progress has been made in understanding the fine details of natural photosynthesis and there has been an emergence and growth of nano-technology. This discussion will look at applying new knowledge to the old problems.
