Semi-artificial photosynthesis: Sunlight into fuel

Photosynthesis Photosynthesis is the process in which light energy is converted to chemical energy in the form of sugars. In a process driven by light energy, glucose molecules are constructed from water and carbon dioxide, and oxygen is released as a byproduct. The glucose molecules provide organisms with two crucial resources: Energy and fixed-organic-carbon. Photosynthetic…
