Latest Photosynthesis Stories
Researchers used an X-ray laser to catch a glimpse of photosynthesis in action. The new technique allowed them to observe the structure and chemical behavior of a natural catalyst involved in photosynthesis.
Emissions from coal power stations could be drastically reduced by a new, energy-efficient material that adsorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide, then releases it when exposed to sunlight.
Using a new research tool, scientists have discovered that forest death in the Amazon is higher than previously believed, a finding that casts a dark shadow on the future of climate change.
Chemists at the University of California, Davis, have engineered blue-green algae to grow chemical precursors for fuels and plastics -- the first step in replacing fossil fuels as raw materials for the chemical industry.
For almost three decades, scientists have tried to identify a particular enzyme involved in regulating electron transport during photosynthesis. Now, a research team from Ludwig Maximilians Universitat has found the missing link, which turns out to be not so new.
In examining the differences in photosynthetic activity among certain types of grasses, researchers from Brown University found that some plants are positioned to take evolutionary advantage of certain situations.
