A team of scientists from the Harvard Medical School and the Wyss Institute for Biological Inspired Engineering have designed a bionic leaf that has the ability to convert solar energy into liquid fuel. The artificial leaf with the help of a catalyst, works by splitting solar energy into oxygen and hydrogen. The device also contains a bacterium, which is engineered to convert hydrogen and carbon dioxide atoms into isopropanol - a type of liquid fuel.
