Sandia National Laboratories recently demonstrated that hollow organic nanotubes, married to an inorganic catalyst, can harness sunlight to turn water into pure hydrogen and oxygen. By 2006, Sandia researchers hope to have prototypes from which a new kind of solar cell could be made that would convert water into fuel.
"If we get lucky and it works [efficiently], then we will try to engineer cells out of these things," said Sandia researcher John Shelnutt. "Then there is going to be a lot of work for EEs."
