RSC Energy and Environment Series
Energy lies at the heart of modern society, and it is critical that we make informed choices of the methods by which we convert and manage energy. The RSC Energy and Environment Series will provide an up-to-date and critical perspective on the various options that are available. Chemistry has a central role to play in the planning and development of sustainable energy scenarios, and the wide range of topics that will be covered in the series will reflect the wealth of chemical ideas and concepts that have the potential to make an important impact in mankind's search for a sustainable energy future.
