the artificial leaf

timer Asked: Dec 10th, 2017

Question description

General Background, history, dates discovery

here is 10 source u can use feel free to other sources but please cit them

1.Hall, D. O., and K. K. Rao. Photosynthesis. Cambridge University Press, 1999

This source explains the process of photosynthesis in extreme detail. It will be used to learn more about the processes that take place during photosynthesis.

2.Martin, Richard. “This Bionic Leaf Is Better at Photosynthesis than a Real Leaf.” MIT Technology Review, MIT Technology Review, 7 June 2016,

This source discusses the development of the artificial leaf. It will be used to provide background information on the topic.

3. Barber, James, and Phong D. Tran. “From natural to artificial photosynthesis.” Journal of The Royal Society Interface, The Royal Society, 6 Apr. 2013,

This source will be good for advantage and disadvantage points. It is also talks about the process of photosynthesis in the first place giving a good idea on how that works, so when the point of artificial comes later on, on this Journal, then a better understanding will accomplished.

4. Noorden, Richard Van . “'Artificial leaf' faces economic hurdle.” Nature News, Nature Publishing Group, 23 May 2012,

This Source talks about the device itself. Costs, materials and design.

5. Nguyen, Phuc D., et al. “Current progress and challenges in engineering viable artificial leaf for solar water splitting.” Journal of Science: Advanced Materials and Devices, 2017, doi:10.1016/j.jsamd.2017.08.006.

This is a good source where it explains the challenges of creating the artificial leaf, while there is so much to gain from it as well.

6. “Artificial Leaf.” Drawdown, 18 July 2017,

The source goes into depth of the photosynthesis process of the artificial leaf.

7. Olmos, J. D. (2015, September). A Quest For Artificial Leaf. Retrieved from

This piece talks about photosynthesis and the process, including photosystem I and II. It details how these systems help pave the way to and design for the artificial leaf. It is a useful article to help understand the basics of photosynthesis and how it is incorporated in the design of the artificial leaf.

8. Artero, V. (2016, March). European and International Initiatives in the Field of Artificial Photosynthesis. Retrieved November 28, 2017, from

This articles talks about the differences in photosynthesis and artificial leaf studies in different countries. It can be helpful to see how different countries incorporate different methods and ideas to the artificial process of photosynthesis.

9. Kim, Sangkuk, et al. “A Highly Versatile and Adaptable Artificial Leaf with Floatability and Planar Compact Design Applicable in Various Natural Environments.” Advanced Materials, 17 July 2017,

The bibliography talks about a highly versatile and adaptable artificial leaf with floatability and planar compact design that is applicable in various natural environments in the order to provide natural energy.

10. Shoji, Shusaku, et al. “Strontium Titanate Based Artificial Leaf Loaded with Reduction and Oxidation Cocatalysts for Selective CO2 Reduction Using Water as an Electron Donor.” ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, vol. 9, no. 24, July 2017, pp. 20613–20619., doi:10.1021/acsami.7b05197.

The bibliography relates to the thin film of SrTiO3 Nano-rods loaded with reduction and oxidation co-catalysts drove the selective reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) into carbon monoxide (CO), as well as caused the production of equivalent oxygen molecules through water oxidation under UV irradiation. The film function as a free-standing plate without any bias potential application, similar to a natural leaf
