My thesis at the University of Georgia was supported by federal grant money to develop solar energy.  It was based on the “Evaluation of Heterogenous Photosensitizers.”  The solid state sensitizers were used to store energy by the conversion of  norbornadiene to quadricyclane.  The quadricyclane can then be converted quantitatively back to norbornadiene to recover the energy in the form of heat.
