Scope of the session

Developing disruptive energy conversion processes requires gathering expertise ranging from materials science (Photo-Electro-Chemical processes), molecular sciences (antenna systems, light-driven electron transfers and bio-inspired catalysts) and biological sciences (photosynthesis and multi-electron metallo-enzymes) through the use of common concepts (light harvesting, electron transfer, electrocatalysis, reaction mechanisms) and tools (nanosciences, electrochemistry, photochemistry, advanced spectroscopy and theoretical chemistry). In this symposium, researchers working in interdisciplinary areas connecting coordination chemistry with biochemistry or materials science can get together to discuss their recent advancements in this field. This symposium will include research in photocatalysis and electrocatalysis of water-splitting reactions together with other important chemical energy conversion processes.
