||Our division is concerned with the direct and indirect use of solar radiation to produce or convert organic materials to fuels, chemicals, or other bio-based materials. Includes production and preparation of biomass; photosynthesis, biomimetic systems and photobiology; photochemical conversion and storage; photoelectrically driven reactions; environmental aspects of solar chemistry; and end use proprieties of solar produced fuels.
