Solar Fuels Team Update

Since the inauguration of our project on Solar Fuels at the University of Toronto, the Solar Fuels research team has made significant strides towards artificial photosynthesis materials, which can mimic the production of energy rich fuels by biological photosynthesis.
This project has required the synergistic integration of a wide range of science and engineering fields and skill-sets. To this end, the Solar Fuels team leader, Professor Ozin, has assembled a unique team of world-class expertise at U of T, which includes know-how from chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, climate science and economics, law and business, across campus and beyond.
We now confident that we possess the required expertise and momentum to transition this research towards practical artificial photosynthetic materials, devices and processes in the coming years.
