Abstract

original image

Materials for sustainability: The consumption rate of fossil fuels compared to the available resources and the calamity of global warming are two problems currently facing humanity. This issue describes research to address these problems, focusing on the use of natural systems to design functional materials, solar energy for environmental remediation, electricity production, and as energy source, and new materials for energy storage and conversion.
