Meeting the Global Energy Challenge: What Can we Learn From Nature?

This October, world experts in solar energy, chemistry, biology, and physics are gathering at U of T to explore the question: What can plants teach humans about utilizing solar energy?

I write to offer all Chemistry Alumni free tickets to a special, accessible public lecture by guest speaker Professor Sir Richard Friend of Cambridge University, who is world-renowned for his pioneering work in organic-LED (OLED) technology, the co-founder of Cambridge Display Technology and Plastic Logic and one of the most celebrated and cited scientists in the world. Sir Richard Friend's talk is called "Meeting the Global Energy Challenge: What Can we Learn From Nature?"

Time: Wednesday October 8 at 8 PM
Place: Koerner Hall, the Royal Conservatory of Music, 273 Bloor Street West
Cost: FREE to University of Toronto Chemistry alumni who register by SEPTEMBER 28
(and $10 otherwise). To register, please send an e-mail to connaught.register@gmail.com that includes your name, year of graduation, and number of tickets requested.

Tickets are limited, so please be in touch soon! We look forward to seeing you in October!”

The cover picture illustrates the performance of Nb3O7(OH), a new hydrogen evolution catalyst: Under solar illumination photo-generated holes are scavenged by methanol while the reduction of protons to hydrogen is kinetically hindered. Thus the electrons remain in the conduction band and/or trap states turning the photocatalyst deep blue. The deposition of metal particles on the surface introduces a new reaction side, which now is able to overcome the kinetic barrier. Subsequently hydrogen is formed and no photochromic process is observed.
