Photosynthesis is the most important process for life on Earth. The book addresses milestone discoveries of the underlyi
ng principles of solar-energy conversion and storage. The discoveries range from the times of alchemy to present-day molecular biology, biophysics and biochemistry. They include the latest insights in protein structures, analytical techniques and advances in biochemical and genetic methodologies. And cutting-edge applications, such as “solar fuel” strategies and “artificial” photosynthesis devices. Ultimately, copying photosynthesis is among the grand scientific and political challenges of the civilized world. In this endeavor, the lines between the sciences and humanities are getting fuzzier than many people might think.
