Solar Fuel and Photosynthesis

Solar induced hydrogen production, water splitting, artifical photosynthesis: solar fuels as the next generation energy supply.

The photocatalytic splitting of water is crucial to the future of the environmental friendly production of hydrogen. This will make the hydrogen based economy a source of emission free and cheap energy.

Researchers all over the world are searching for suitable materials, which show a strong catalytic effect of producing hydrogen out of water or smiliar compunds by using the power of the sun. On the other hand, great efforts have been done in investigating and understanding the science of fuel cells and hydrogen engines, which are capable of using efficiently the power of this small molecule.

Establishing a completely closed and fully reliable hydrogen circle without using fossil fuels or nuclear power plants as energy supplies for H2 production is a goal which can enormously change our energy consumption.
