Artificial photosynthesis is a chemical process that captures and stores the energy from sunlight in a chemical fuel (a so called solar fuel). This renewable process requires the finely tuned combination of light absorption, charge separation and chemical catalysis, which is superbly coupled in natural photosynthesis but much less so by artificial systems. This presentation will summarise our recent progress in developing approaches to interface enzymes and synthetic catalysts with semiconductor materials to photo-split water as a sustainable route to the energy vector hydrogen.

Entry is free to all and free refreshments will be provided.
