Presented by Dr. Prashant K. Jain


Dr. Prashant K. Jain is the Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and the Materials Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign and this meeting's Fred Kavli Emerging Leaders in Chemistry Lecturer. This lecture will highlight a bold venture into artificial photosynthesis accomplished through nanostructured catalysts engineered for trapping photons, sculpting electromagnetic fields, generating multi-electronic states, and ultimately forging energy-rich chemical bonds.
