From Natural to Artificial…

Abstract:
Another breakthrough in this field has been achieved lately. Employing Carbon nanotubes and phthalocyanines to energize multiple electrons to artificially photosynthesize, nanotechnology has gifted nature to us! With just one hour of solar energy incident on earth enough to satisfy world's energy demands for the entire year, the idea promises an almost evident future where artificial plants generate power using solar energy.

Harping on solar and wind resources to produce the electricity for the process creates a renewable system and also reduces carbon emissions considerably. With rapid evolvement of nanotechnology, the day may not be far when this energy, developed from sunlight, replaces petroleum, diesel, coal consumed in passenger vehicles; gasoline, LPG used in cooking; and even the energy used for lighting our homes, offices and buildings.
