Session P – Bioinspired Chemistry and Materials for Sustainable Energy
- Objectives : this symposium will bring chemists and engineers with diverse expertise who have a common interest in employing ideas from biology to address pending challenges of solar and other forms of sustainable energy. The symposium will focus on key challenges pertinent to the impacts from energy production and consumption on the environment, the addressing of which requires not only innovative technological developments, but also unprecedented fundamental paradigms. Therefore, this symposium will provide a platform for interfacing basic science with applied engineering as a driving force for innovation, which will be in concord with the theme of the conference.
- Session Chair : Valentine I. Vullev (University of California, Riverside, USA)
