Artificial leaf produces first drugs using sunlight

Many of the problems human engineers face have already been solved by nature, so why not use those as a jumping off point? Making artificial versions of the humble leaf has been an ongoing area of research for decades and in a new breakthrough, researchers from the Eindhoven University of Technology have fine-tuned their artificial leaf design and used it to produce drugs for the first time. Given its small size and scalability, the team says that the artificial leaf could eventually be used to produce drugs and other molecules right where they’re needed. Read More: newatlas.com
