Description

Energy and the Chemical Sciences: The 1977 Karcher Symposium is a collection of papers that discusses the relationship between chemistry and energy problems. The selection views the relationship from varying perspective. The text also tackles the relationship while giving consideration to factors such as engineering difficulties, economic constraints, feasibility, and public policy. The coverage of the text includes topics such as a biomimetic approach to solar energy conversion; prospects for non-biological storage of solar energy; and national energy policy and the role of congress. The book will be of use to scientists, engineers, and technicians who are involved in the research, development, and implementation of alternative energy technology.
