Another innovative feature has been added to the world's first practical "artificial leaf," making the device even more suitable for providing people in developing countries and remote areas with electricity, scientists reported here today. It gives the leaf the ability to self-heal damage that occurs during production of energy. Daniel G. Nocera, Ph.D., described the advance during the "Kavli Foundation Innovations in Chemistry Lecture" at the 245th National Meeting & Exposition of...

A detailed description of development of the first practical artificial leaf – a milestone in the drive for sustainable energy that mimics the process, photosynthesis, that green plants use to convert water and sunlight into energy – appears in the ACS journal Accounts of Chemical Research. The article notes that unlike earlier devices, which used costly ingredients, the new device is made from inexpensive materials and employs low-cost engineering and manufacturing processes....

By James Thalman Deseret News Using the sun combined with nature's way of turning solar power into life-sustaining energy can be captured, artificially induced and could provide enough power in less than an hour to run the house, the car and bring on an era of true energy independence. The power of solar is not on the grand scale of collectors spread over square acres in the west desert, says Daniel Nocera, a widely cited chemist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who is...

By CHRISTINE McCONVILLE In what is being hailed as a major breakthrough in solar energy, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found a way to use the sun's abundant, non-polluting rays as a power source even when the sun isn't shining. "What we're doing allows you to use (solar panels) 24/7, because you can use the fuel that they generate any time you want," said Daniel Nocera, MIT's Henry Dreyfus Professor of Energy and one of two men behind the discovery. As the...
