The prospect of sustainably generating fuels from sunlight via artificial photosynthesis has inspired scientists for decades. Over time, intensive research devoted to materials for catalysis and light harvesting provided a set of components individually optimized for specific steps of sunlight-to-fuel conversion, as well as a conceptual basis for understanding conversion mechanisms. These efforts also revealed critical gaps in properties of existing materials, in models of non-ideal function, and especially in our understanding of concerted processes occurring in integrated photosystems.
