Improvements for Browsing Journal Content Implemented, October 10, 2014 08:19

We have implemented several minor changes to support users browsing and discovering content on www.mdpi.com. Readers will notice new buttons on the right and left side of each article and issue page. These buttons facilitate navigation through an issue or volume. Related articles from our journals and other publishers are displayed on the abstract page of our Web of Science and PubMed covered journals. Further, keywords on article pages are now linked for a convenient search across all MDPI journals.

New Book Received: Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting. By Hans-Joachim Lewerenz, Laurie Peter, RSC Publishing, 2013; 468 Pages. Price £139.99, ISBN 978-1-84973-647-3, January 13, 2014 04:19

There has been a resurgence of interest in light-induced water splitting as the search for storable carbon neutral energy becomes more urgent. Although the history of the basic idea dates back more than four decades, efficient, economical and stable integrated devices have yet to be realized. In the continuing quest for such devices, the field of photoelectrochemistry is entering a new phase where the extraordinary interdisciplinary of the research and development efforts are opening new avenues. This aspect of current research effort is reflected in the chapters of this book, which encompass present thinking in the various disciplines such as materials science, photo-electrochemistry and interfaces that can contribute to realization of viable solar fuel generators. This book presents a blend of the background science and recent advances in the field of photoelectrochemical water splitting, and includes aspects that point towards medium to long term future realization. The content of the book goes beyond the more traditional approaches to the subject by including topics such as novel excitation energy processes that have only been realized so far in advanced photonics. The comprehensive overview of current activities and development horizons provided by the impressive collection of internationally renowned authors therefore represents a unique reflection of current thinking regarding water splitting by light.
