We seek bioinspired Z-scheme strategies to harness the energy of two photoexcitations, thereby enabling difficult chemical transformations.

Can photoinduced electron transfer empower organometallic catalysts for reductive elimination reactions?

Can bio-inspired light-harvesting systems transform the efficiency of photo-driven organometallic catalysts?

The fundamental advance of the Bioinspired Light-Escalated (BioLEC) EFRC will be to establish a platform for directing difficult chemical transformations that are enabled by combining the energies of multiple photons. The resulting breakthroughs will yield energy-relevant chemicals, fuels, and materials.
