Bacteria that inspires artificial photosynthetic systems discovered

An international team of scientists has determined the structure of the chlorophyll molecules in green bacteria that are responsible for harvesting light energy.

The team’s results could one day be used to build artificial photosynthetic systems such as those that convert solar energy to electrical energy.

The scientists found that the chlorophylls are highly efficient at harvesting light energy.
