Artificial Photosynthesis Can Bring Green Tech Closer to Solar Energy Storage

Chemists at the University of Illinois have successfully produced fuels using water, carbon dioxide and visible light through artificial photosynthesis. By converting carbon dioxide into more complex molecules like propane, green energy technology is now one step closer to using excess CO2 to store solar energy – in the form of chemical bonds – for […]

A Solar Cell That Does Double Duty for Renewable Energy

Researchers develop an artificial photosynthesis system that generates hydrogen fuel and electricity at the same time In the quest for abundant, renewable alternatives to fossil fuels, scientists have sought to harvest the sun’s energy through “water splitting,” an artificial photosynthesis technique that uses sunlight to generate hydrogen fuel from water. But water-splitting devices have yet […]
