Scientists who conducted a research on photosynthesis found that plants leak electrons while photosynthesizing. Moreover, these electrons can be directed. This development is critical for biofuels and solar cells.
A group of scientists working at Cambridge University, one of the most important aspects of our lives, photosynthesis They did a remarkable study on Plants leak electrons during photosynthesis, according to research published in the journal Nature. Moreover, these electrons can be directed. So technically from photosynthesis to generate electricityfound to be possible.
Within the scope of the study, the researchers gave laser beams to the photosynthesizing samples and momentarily They looked at how things changed. In the examinations made, it was determined that there was an electron release when photosynthesis started in plant cells. The plant did this to protect itself from the harmful effects of the sun, but humanity would do much more if it could achieve its purpose. advantageouswill take a position.
Could revolutionize solar cell and biofuels
In fact, past research has hinted that electrons may be emerging during photosynthesis. Recent research has shown that these electrons being directed demonstrated that it is possible. According to previous studies, such a situation was impossible. Making a statement on the subject, Researcher Dr. Jenny Zhang” This is a completely new approach to biofuel production. One of the earliest and strongest points of photosynthesis electrons we collectand we guide them.‘ he said.
One of the contributors to the research, Dr. Tomi Baikie said that the method in question efficiency spoke about. ” What really makes photosynthesis special is in converting light into electrons. close to 100%is efficiency.‘ said the scientist, ‘ We can use this knowledge to improve existing solar cell technology.‘ he said.
The research is not just important for biofuels and solar cells. The researchers found that when the electrons were interfered with, the plant’s carbon dioxide capture performance. They found that they had changed. This is also very important because if the discovery is implemented worldwide, this time greenhouse gas emissions will be brought under control. Maximumcarbon dioxide capture performance can improve Earth’s sustainability.
Although research on photosynthesis is still at an early stage, promising future . Experts believe that new research built on this work will provide more insight into how photosynthesis can be managed. If the desired point can be reached, our lives will change drastically. Jenny Zhang” In the long run, if we can generate self-generating, self-recycling, renewable energy and fuel from living materials, that will be for sustainabilitygoing forward, it will be one of the greenest options imaginable.‘ he said.
