Fast Artificial Photosynthesis Could Change Solar Energy Forever

For more than 30 years scientists around the world have been working on creating an artificial form of photosynthesis, with varying results. Licheng Sun, professor of organic chemistry at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden, said that the main problem has always been the speed of the reactions.However Licheng Sun along with his team of researchers believe that they have solved the problem. They have constructed a molecular catalyser which can oxidise water into oxygen at record breaking speeds. Natural photosynthesis generally…
