Conference Announcement

6th International Conference on Solar Energy and Applied Photochemistry, 3—8 April 2001, Cairo, Egypt

This conference and an associated workshop aim to provide a means of communication between scientists in different academic disciplines who share a common interest in the fundamental and technological aspects of the electronic excited state of different systems. It will focus on research among the chemistry, physics, engineering, optics, electronics, materials science, biological, pharmaceutical, and medical communities. The conference and its satellite training workshop will cover fundamental and applied aspects of the following topics:

  • photochemistry and photophysics relevant to nanoscale and supramolecular science and technology
  • analytical applications of fluorescence, bioluminescence, and chemiluminescence
  • photobiology, photostability of drugs, and photodynamic therapy
  • photocatalysis and photodegradation of pollutants in air, water, and soil
  • photoconductivity, photovoltaics, and molecular photovoltaics of organic materials and new materials
  • applications of photochemistry to molecules and various chemical systems, such as xerography, coatings, semiconductor microdevices, solar cells, fuel cells, electrochromism, photochromism, lasers, imaging, etc.
