In the active centre of carbon dioxide conversion

Scientists reveal the features of efficient carboxylase enzymes

12-Jul-2019

In order to overcome the climate crisis, two measures are required: The reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and removal of CO2 from the earth atmosphere. The latter is the goal of Tobias Erb's research group at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology in Marburg. Their ...

A solar cell that does double duty for renewable energy

Artificial photosynthesis system that generates hydrogen fuel and electricity at the same time

31-Oct-2018

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 to live up to their ...

This bacterium gets paid in gold

Harvesting solar fuels through a bacterium's unusual appetite for gold

11-Oct-2018

A bacterium named Moorella thermoacetica won't work for free. But UC Berkeley researchers have figured out it has an appetite for gold. And in exchange for this special treat, the bacterium has revealed a more efficient path to producing solar fuels through artificial photosynthesis. M. ...

Eco-Friendly Nanoparticles for Artificial Photosynthesis

Quantum dots of indium phosphide and zinc sulfide using sunlight

02-Oct-2018

Researchers at the University of Zurich have developed a nanoparticle type for novel use in artificial photosynthesis by adding zinc sulfide on the surface of indium-based quantum dots. These quantum dots produce clean hydrogen fuel from water and sunlight – a sustainable source of energy. They ...

Reducing CO2 with common elements and sunlight

28-Jun-2018

An international collaborative research group including Tokyo Institute of Technology, Universite PARIS DIDEROT, and CNRS has discovered that CO2 is selectively reduced to CO when a photocatalyst composed of an organic semiconductor material and an iron complex is exposed to visible light. They ...
