Abstract

The Applied and Green Photochemistry Group at James Cook University (JCU) in Townsville, Australia, has been at the forefront of solar photochemical research and has realized solar transformations from laboratory through to production scales. Located in tropical North Queensland, Townsville experiences over 300 days of sunshine per year, which makes it a favorable location for solar research. The current Solar Chemicals from and for the Tropics initiative of the group builds on both of tropical Australia's abundant natural resources, sunlight and biomass, and utilizes these for the bulk production of commercially and tropically relevant chemicals.
