Artificial leaf could generate fuel by photosynthesis

Scientists at the University of Glasgow have created an artificial ‘leaf’ capable of converting the sun’s energy to liquid fuel. Professor Richard Cogdell from the University of Glasgow explained “The sun gives its energy away for free but making use of it is tricky. We can use solar panels to make electricity but it’s intermittent and difficult to store. What we are trying to do is take the energy from the
