NEWS - Berkeley lab researchers identify key steps in artificial photosynthesis reaction

Researchers at Berkeley Lab, led by Dr. Heinz Frei of the Physical Biosciences Division, reported the first direct temporally resolved observations of intermediate steps in water oxidation using the Earth-abundant catalyst cobalt oxide (Co3O4). Their paper is published in the journal Nature Chemistry.Artificial photosynthesis, which emulates the process used by nature to capture energy from the sun and convert it into electrochemical energy, coul ...
