Title: New Chemistry for Artificial Photosynthesis: A Theoretical Perspective (448th Brookhaven Lecture)

Photosynthesis, which occurs in green plants, is a natural process in which light produces energy from water and carbon dioxide. Nowadays, scientists are working to replicate this process artificiallymore », with the goal of creating clean, usable, renewable energy from the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. During the 448th Brookhaven Lecture in Berkner Hall on Wednesday, April 15, at 4 p.m., Senior Chemist James Muckerman of the Chemistry Department will discuss "New Chemistry for Artificial Photosynthesis: A Theoretical Perspective." After reviewing natural photosynthesis, he will discuss how electrochemical systems driven by sunlight could carry out artificial photosynthesis and how these systems could then be turned into usable fuels that do not create pollution or undesirable by-products« less
