Abstract

"Harvesting energy from the sun is something that nature does well through photosynthesis: green plants convert carbon dioxide to glucose with energy provied by the sun in a complex set of reactions. Mimicking photosynthesis through artificial systems designed to convert optical energy into chemical or electrical energy, has been the goal and challenge for many years...the photochemical and photophysical properties of transition metal complexes, especially [Ru(bpy)₃]²⁺, have been studied comprehensively in terms of the Photoinduced Electron Transfer (PET) properties in donor-acceptor systems (D/A)."--Introduction, page 1.
