Sunlight to Everything: Catalyzing a Sustainable Future
Sunlight is an inexhaustible resource. Its energy is key to reducing carbon emissions, decreasing waste, and lessening CO2 emissions. These goals are essential to mitigating the worst effects of climate change. Caltech’s Resnick Sustainability Institute (RSI), led by Bren Professor of Chemistry Jonas Peters, has defined Sunlight to Everything as one of its four central research initiatives. Using sunlight, RSI researchers are imagining how to generate and manage electricity more efficiently; convert it to chemical fuels, materials, and fertilizers; and use it to power water purification. The discovery of new catalysts that can convert sunlight into desired chemical feedstocks is one of the key hurdles they face. The hunt is on, and in this lecture Peters will explain how and where he and his colleagues are looking.

This event is free and open to the public.
