Argonne scientists discover new pathway for artificial photosynthesis

Currently, the most efficient methods that we have of making fuel — principally hydrogen — from sunlight and water involve rare and expensive metal catalysts, like platinum. In a new study, researchers at the US Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have found a new, more efficient way to link a less expensive synthetic cobalt-containing catalyst to an organic light-sensitive molecule, called a chromophore.
