Abstract

There can be no doubt that solar energy conversion technologies aimed towards the development of “product-oriented” biological and chemical photosynthetic systems have recently aroused interest (Gratzel, 1983). Most processes have been directed to the production of molecular hydrogen, but the production of other energy-rich compounds such as hydrogen peroxide-this is not only a useful source of oxygen but also a powerful source of energy-also deserves attention (Losada, 1979; Navarro et al., 1987).
