Artificial Leaf

The Artificial Leaf | Jared P. Scott & Kelly Nyks from Focus Forward Films on Vimeo.

An ‘artificial leaf’ made by Daniel Nocera and his team, using a silicon  solar cell with novel catalyst materials bonded to its two sides, is  shown in a container of water with light (simulating sunlight) shining  on it. The light generates a flow of electricity that causes the water  molecules, with the help of the catalysts, to split into oxygen and  hydrogen, which bubble up from the two surfaces.
