Ultrafast Photoinduced Energy and Charge Transfer: Faraday Discussion 216


About this book

Ultrafast energy and charge transfer events dictate the functionality of a broad range of molecular, aggregate and nanomaterial systems. Impressive recent advances in the commercialisation of ultrafast laser technology and on many theoretical fronts, plus the societal emphasis on solar energy, have led to a surge of research in this community, encompassing spectroscopists, biophysicists, computational and theoretical chemists, physicists and materials scientists. Ambitions have evolved beyond studies of simple molecular systems, and increasingly focus on the underlying molecular mechanisms prevailing in nanomaterial, native protein and hybrid systems. Many working in this area share a common aim, to address and answer one of the most pressing issues currently facing the scientific community: the photophysics underlying efficient light capture, energy transport and efficient charge carrier generation, water splitting, photo-protection and photo-damage, proton transfer and/or molecular re-organisation.

This volume discusses the following themes:
Energy and charge-transfer in natural photosynthesis
Photovoltaics and bio-inspired light harvesting
Photo-induced electron transfer
Photo-protection/photo-damage in natural systems

Author information

Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2017) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.427.
