Abstract

This chapter presents a brief history of molecule-based artificial photosynthesis research. The emphasis is on early work on the subject beginning in the late 1970s, but the evolution of the field up through the present day is discussed. The main subjects covered are artificial reaction centres and photoinduced electron transfer, artificial photosynthetic antennas, mimicry of photosynthetic photoprotection and photoregulation and the construction of systems that couple these processes to the production of fuels.
