Solar fuels: Refined protective layer for the ‘artificial leaf’

by WoR Network EditorMarch 21, 2016

A process for providing sensitive semiconductors for solar water splitting (‘artificial leaves’) with an organic, transparent protective layer has been developed by researchers. The extremely thin protective layer made of carbon chains is stable, conductive, and covered with catalyzing nanoparticles of metal oxides. These accelerate the splitting of water when irradiated by light.
