Artificial Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis is the process by which plant survives and acts as a greatest sink for carbon dioxide. This paper shows that how a photosynthesis reaction in plants takes place artificially with the help of electronic components. This paper starts with introducing the basic reactions that occurs in plant in the process of photosynthesis. Next it gives information about photovoltaic cell. This paper also deals four steps describing the process of Artificial photosynthesis (AFP). First is the chlorophyll in a leaf is replaced with a photovoltaic cell which release electrons when exited by solar energy. Second step is to split water molecule where as artificially it is done with biomimetric engineering by fabricating new core with new geometry for splitting of water molecule. The third step that bioenergy transfer that occurs because of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and sodium diphosphate (NADPH). The last process is to convert CO2 to other organic components. Then it goes to micro fabrication of AFP.
