As everybody knows, solar power is a good source of energy, and it can be used as an effective alternative to all the non-renewable resources, the scientists have come up with the idea where they can use the better ideas of extracting solar power from different sources. The idea to find new ways to use solar power has certainly taken a step towards after the scientists split water into hydrogen and oxygen by altering the photosynthetic machinery in the plants.
Photosynthesis is the process that the plants go through to convert sunlight into an energy form. Oxygen is produced as a by-product of this process when water gets absorbed by the plants is split. It is considered one of the essential reactions on the plant as it is the basic source of nearly all of the world’s oxygen. Hydrogen that gets produced when water is split could significantly be a green and unlimited source of renewable energy.
According to a new study, it has been revealed that after using semi-artificial photosynthesis procedures, the study explored new and effective ways to produce and store solar energy. They also utilized natural sunlight to convert water into hydrogen and oxygen with the help of the mixture of biological components and manmade technologies.
As stated by the researchers, the findings can now be used to revolutionize the systems that are used for the production of renewable energy. The technique used by them also managed to absorb more amount of solar light as compared to that of natural photosynthesis. As stated by the researchers, the approach could be used to couple other reactions together to see what else can be done, and learn from the reactions and then develop synthetic and more potentially robust pieces of solar energy.
