Title: Final Report for SC0004833 (8-1-2010 to 7-31-2017)

Abstract

Utilization of sun light as an energy source requires solar capture, light-to-energy conversion, and storage. One effective way to store solar energy is to convert it into chemical energy by fuel-forming reactions, such as water splitting into hydrogen and oxygen (2H 2O + 4hν → O 2 + 2H 2), water reduction of CO 2 to methanol (2H 2O + CO 2 + 6hv → CH 3OH + 3/2O 2) or hydrocarbons. In photosynthesis, these processes are realized with high efficiencies, making it the blueprint for engineering “sunlight-to-fuel” energy devices.
