Scientists split water into hydrogen and oxygen with just sunlight

Scientists have achieved the long-standing goal of reproducing photosynthesis in a laboratory, using only the power of sunlight. Photosynthesis is the process plants use to convert sunlight and water into energy, or sugar, leaving oxygen behind as a by-product.

Photosynthesis is crucial to life on Earth as the source of nearly all of the world’s oxygen, while the hydrogen which is produced when the water is split could be a potentially unlimited source of renewable energy.

The study used semi-artificial photosynthesis to explore new ways to produce and store solar energy, using only natural sunlight and a mixture of biological and man-made components.
