Abstract

This short review describes how the basic reactions of photosynthesis can be broken down into four distinct steps. The current understanding of the molecular mechanisms of these steps, within light-harvesting complexes and reaction centres, in this process is discussed as a framework for the construction of artificial systems capable of using solar energy to make fuels.
