Latest Photosynthetic reaction centre Stories
Clean solutions to human energy demands are essential to our future. While sunlight is the most abundant source of energy at our disposal, we have yet to learn how to capture, transfer and store solar energy efficiently.
Researchers have developed a new method to probe the fundamental workings of photosynthesis.
"I have a slide that has a photo of a cornfield and a big photovoltaic array," says Robert Blankenship, a scientist who studies photosynthesis at Washington University in St. Louis.
Recently, academic debate has been swirling around the existence of unusual quantum mechanical effects in the most ubiquitous of phenomena, including photosynthesis, the process by which organisms convert light into chemical energy.
Energy from hydrogen â€“ scientists from all over the world work on this solution to overcome the energy crisis.
The future of clean green solar power may well hinge on scientists being able to unravel the mysteries of photosynthesis, the process by which green plants convert sunlight into electrochemical energy.
University of Miami researcher examines the light harvesting properties of purple bacteria in hopes of adapting their natural designs in 'green' technologies for humans.
A new energy solution may be coming from an unexpected source â€” a source that may be on your dinner plate tonight.
An international team of scientists, including two from Arizona State University, have taken a significant step closer to unlocking the secrets of photosynthesis, and possibly to cleaner fuels.
As so-called primary producers, plants use solar energy to synthesize the foodstuffs that sustain other forms of life.
