The Use of Ruthenium-Containing Polythiols for Solar Energy Conversion
Solar energy conversion is an attractive and important area of study. Work has increased as the cost of fuels has increased and the availability of non-(rapidly) renewable fuels has decreased. This coincides with an increased awareness and need for “cleaner” fuels. Efforts have varied from simply capturing thermal solar energy in liquid holding tanks to the use of complex chemically-based systems. Many of these chemical efforts have involved the “splitting” of water into hydrogen and oxygen gasses and the subsequently reuniting of these gasses at a later time, subsequently capturing the expelled energy.
