About this book

This interdisciplinary book focuses on the various aspects transformation of the energy from sunlight into the chemical bonds of a fuel, known as the artificial photosynthesis, and addresses the emergent challenges connected with growing societal demands for clean and sustainable energy technologies. The editors assemble the research of world-recognized experts in the field of both molecular and materials artificial systems for energy production. Contributors cover the full scope of research on photosynthesis and related energy processes.

About the authors

Dr. Elena A. Rozhkova, Ph.D. is a Scientist and a Principal Investigator at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), USA. Rozhkova’s major research interests include nanoscience and nanotechnology for clean energy, bio-inspired catalysis, complex energy gradients in biology and at the nano-bio interface, nanomaterials-enabled signaling within biological machinery, advanced synchrotron X-ray imaging. At the Center for Nanoscale Materials, US DOE premier facility for nanomaterials and nanotechnology, Dr. Rozhkova is a key scientific contact for diversified users’ community dealing with application of biological principles in design and development of functional nanomaterials
for emerging energy and biomedical technologies.

Katsuhiko Ariga is the Director of Supermolecules Unit and Principal Investigator of World Premier International (WPI) Research Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) at the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) as well as Fellows of Royal Society of Chemistry, Highly Cited Researcher (2014, Thompson Reuters, Materials Science), and a member of the Global Agenda Councils on Nanotechnology for World Economic Forum. His research field is based on supermolecular chemistry and surface science, including the boundary research areas of organic chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, and materials chemistry. His major interests are the fabrication of novel functional nanostructures based on molecular recognition and self-assembly including Langmuir-Blodgett films, layer-by-layer films, and mesoporous materials.
