The Chinese team has solved a major problem in photocatalysis

The Chinese have cracked a major mystery in the field of photovoltaic cells: how to make a photocatalytic enzyme coupling device that can convert light into electricity.The researchers of the project, which is described in a paper published by Nature Communications, have created an enzyme that catalyzes the production of a new type of photocatalysts called perovskyl perovs (POPs).Perovskites are […]

China’s $2bn photocatalytic light plant may have the potential to transform the energy sector

China’s photocats, light-emitting diodes, light bulbs and even mobile phones can all be converted into electricity using energy-harvesting technology.But it may not be as easy as turning on a light bulb and hoping to convert it to electricity.Instead, there is the potential for solar energy harvesting, a new technology that has been in the works for a long time.The Chinese […]

Bioprocessing Technology Could Make Us 100% Bioprotectant-Free in a Year

A year from now, biofuels may be ubiquitous in our lives.In the next few years, we may see a whole new range of products, including photocatalysts, biofuel bioprops, bioelectrics, biofluids, and even nanoparticles.But just how safe are they, and how do they stack up to the big bioproducts, like carbon nanotubes?¬†In a previous¬†Eureka!article, I covered the potential of biofuel technologies […]
