An "artificial leaf"

3 weeks agoOdd : TYWKIWDBI

A graduate student working with the Tufts University silk lab has created an "artificial leaf" by extracting chloroplasts from plants and suspending them in a matrix of silk protein. When provided with water and exposed to light, the leaves will produce oxygen. Via Fresh Photons.

Artificial leaf’ technology can cleanly produce hydrogen fuel

Researchers Peidong Yang, Bin Liu and colleagues may have found a way to mimic plants' ability to produce hydrogen from sunlight. Yang's team has used a process borrowed from the paper industry to create a flat mesh from light-absorbing semiconductor nanowires.

Toward a low-cost 'artificial leaf' that produces clean hydrogen fuel

For years, scientists have been pursuing "artificial leaf" technology, a green approach to making hydrogen fuel that copies plants' ability to convert sunlight into a form of energy they can use. Now, one team reports progress toward a stand-alone system that lends itself to large-scale, low-cost production. Show More Summary

Oxygen-Producing Synthetic Leaf May Allow Man To Colonize Space

An artificial, synthetic leaf that has recently been developed turns water and light into oxygen, and along with the possible environmental benefits, the invention may have implications that are out of this world. The synthetic leaf is the brainchild of Royal College of Art graduate Julian Melchiorri, according to IFLScience. The leaf technology was developed

Artificial Leaf Produces Oxygen

CNET: One of the persistent challenges of manned space exploration is that pesky lack of oxygen throughout much of the universe. Here on Earth, trees and other plant life do us a real solid by taking in our bad breath and changing it back to clean, sweet O2. Show More Summary
