International Solar Fuels Conference 2021

We are delighted to support the International Solar Fuels conference 2021, organized by the Royal Society of Chemistry in conjunction with the University of Grenoble and Uppsala University. This conference will take place online from the 26th – 29th July 2021.

The main conference will be preceded by the Young conference, which aims to give as many young researchers as possible the opportunity to present. This will also include keynote talks from mentoring experts, and careers advice from the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The programme will explore all aspects of direct solar fuel production, combining biological, molecular and solid state approaches. The main themes include:

  • Multi-electron/multi-proton catalysis (homogeneous, heterogeneous, enzymatic and bioinspired processes)
  • Light-harvesting and light-driven processes
  • Photoelectrochemistry
  • Photobiological approaches
  • Metabolic engineering
  • Devices and demonstration: robustness, sustainability and upscale

Submit your oral abstract to the mainconference or the Young conference before 06 April 2021

Submit your poster abstract to the main conference or the Young conference by 7 June 2021

New Themed Issue – Organic Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage

We are delighted to highlight the latest Sustainable Energy & Fuels themed issue on Organic Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage.

Guest Edited by Emilio Palomares (ICIQ and ICREA) and Juan Luis Delgado (Ikerbasque and Polymat), this issue showcases studies on the recent progress and challenges in the field of organic, inorganic and hybrid materials for energy conversion. This includes advances in photovoltaics, solar to fuels conversion, and catalysis for sustainable energy applications. You can read our Editorial introducing this issue here.

In addition to the Open Access articles in this issue, all articles are free to access until 28th February.

Below is a small selection of some of the articles featured in the issue:
