Energy for everybody? The ever increasing world energy demand cannot be satisfied much longer with fossil fuels; alternatives are required to limit the chance of a climate collapse and the spreading of wars for natural resources.
The 21st century will be largely defined by the way we face and resolve the energy crisis. This is an intricate and fascinating scientific challenge, in which chemistry will play a fundamental role, and also an unprecedented opportunity to shape a more peaceful world.
The challenges involved were recently discussed by Nicola Armaroli and Vincenzo Balzani (U Bologna, Italy) in an Essay in the journal "Angewandte Chemie". In December 2006, this article was among the most popular among the readers of the online edition of the journal.
