Solar Energy Conversion: Chemical Aspects (3527328742) cover image
Finally filling a gap in the literature for a text that also adopts the chemist's view of this hot topic, Professor Likhtenshtein, an experienced
author and internationally renowned scientist, considers different physical and engineering aspects in solar energy conversion.

From theory to real-life systems, he shows exactly which chemical reactions take place when converting light energy, providing an overview of the chemical perspective from fundamentals to molecular harvesting systems and solar cells.

This essential guide will thus help researchers in academia and industry better understand solar energy conversion, and so ultimately
help this promising, multibillion dollar fi eld to expand.

From the contents:
* Electron Transfer Theories
* Principle Stages of Photosynthetic Light Energy Conversion
* Photochemical Systems of Light Energy Conversion
* Redox Processes on Surface of Semiconductors and Metals
* Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
* Photocatalytic Reduction and Oxidation of Water

Gertz I. Likhtenshtein received his PhD and his doctor of science from the Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics at the Russian Academy of Science in Moscow, where he was appointed to the position of Head of Laboratory of Chemical Physics of Enzyme Catalysis in 1965, becoming a professor in 1976.

In 1992 he moved to the Department of Chemistry at the Ben-Gurion University of Negev, Israel, as a full professor in charge of the Laboratory of Chemical Biophysics and has been an emeritus since 2003. He has authored nine scientific books and around 380 papers, and his many awards include the Medal of the Exhibition of Economic Achievement, the Diploma of Discovery, the USSR State Prize, the V.V. Voevodsky
International Price for Chemical Physics and the Diploma of the Israel Chemical Society. Professor Likhtenshtein is a member of the International ESR Society, the American Biophysical Society, the Israel Chemical Society and the Israel ESR Society.

His main scientific interests focus on antioxidants analysis and mechanisms of light energy conversion.
