Artificial Leaf That Turns Sunlight into Energy

Allana Bochmann

Scientists have created a practical artificial leaf that has the ability to turn sunlight and water into energy as efficiently as a real leaf could. The artificial leaf looks nothing like a real one, and is made of stable materials that produce the same energy. It is made of silicon, electronics, and catalysts that create chemical reactions which produce the energy. Scientists believe that if the leaves were left in a gallon of water with sunlight, then they could , after a while, provide a home with basic energy for one day.
