Ultrafast Science ✦ Femtosecond & Single Molecule Biophysics ✦ Catalysis for Synthetic Chemistry ✦ Solar Photochemistry ✦ Inorganic Photochemistry ✦ Artificial Photosynthesis

The fundamental advance of the Bioinspired Light-Escalated Chemistry (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.
