  1. 1. Dinuclear Manganese Complexes for Artificial Photosynthesis Synthesis and Properties

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för organisk kemi

    Author : Magnus Anderlund; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Crystal Structure; Artificial photosynthesis; Manganese complex; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the synthesis and characterisation of a series of dinuclear manganese complexes. Their ability to donate electrons to photo-generated ruthenium(III) has been investigated in flash photolysis experiments followed by EPR-spectroscopy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ruthenium(II) Polypyridyl Complexes Applications in Artificial Photosynthesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för organisk kemi

    Author : Olof Johansson; Stockholms universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organisk kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi;

    Abstract : Molecular mimics of PS II, which consist of a photosensitizer linked to electron acceptors/donors, are attractive candidates for the conversion of solar energy into chemical energy. Several different classes of sensitizers have been studied and among these, ruthenium(II) polypyridyl complexes continue to attract major attention. READ MORE

  3. 3. Artificial Photosynthesis: Molecular Catalysts for Water Oxidation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Lei Wang; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; artificial photosynthesis; water oxidation; ruthenium complexes; nickel complexes; cerium; photo-catalysts; photosensitizer; electrochemistry; immobilization.; Kemi; Chemistry; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Artificial photosynthesis provides a promising solution to the future sustainable energy system. Water is the only suitably sufficient protons and electrons supplier by the reaction of water oxidation. However, this reaction is both kinetically and thermodynamically demanding, leading to a sluggish kinetics unless the introduction of a catalyst. READ MORE

  4. 4. Electron Donor Systems in Natural and Artificial Photosynthesis

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Ann Magnuson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; solar energy; artificial photosynthesis; Photosystem II; EPR; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : Photosynthesis is the process by which light energy is converted into chemical products, in photoautotrophic bacteria, algae and plants. The principal idea is the production of reducing agents by photo-induced oxidation of a sacrificial electron donor. READ MORE

  5. 5. Electron Transfer in Ruthenium-Manganese Complexes for Artificial Photosynthesis Studies in Solution and on Electrode Surfaces

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Malin L. A. Abrahamsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; Artificial photosynthesis; electron transfer; energy transfer; ruthenium; manganese; titanium dioxide; Fysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : In today’s society there is an increasing need for energy, an increase which for the most part is supplied by the use of fossil fuels. Fossil fuel resources are limited and their use has harmful effects on the environment, therefore the development of technologies that produce clean energy sources is very appealing. READ MORE
