Do as plants do: Novel photocatalysts can perform solar-driven conversion of CO2 into fuel

Source: Science Daily

Scientists develop a novel ‘heterostructured’ photocatalyst using titanium and copper, two abundant and relatively inexpensive metals. Their cost-effective synthesis procedure, coupled with the high stability of the photocatalyst, provides an economically feasible way to convert waste carbon dioxide and water into useful hydrocarbon fuels using endless sunlight.
