Water splitting using particulate photocatalysts has attracted attention as a means of producing clean hydrogen from water and sunlight. To efficiently convert solar energy into chemical energy in the form of hydrogen, it is required to develop a photocatalytic system that works under visible light, the main component of solar spectrum.
Challenge to Develop Stable Materials that Exhibit Near-Infrared Light Absorption and Emission
Associate Professor, Dept. of Chemistry, School of Science
Near-infrared absorbing and emitting dyes are expected to be applied in various fields including energy-conversion materials, such as light-absorptive materials for organic solar cells, biomaterials for chemotherapy, and in-vivo deep tissue imaging.
