Analytical solutions for artificial photosynthesis

16 May 2024

Artificial photosynthesis is a technology that uses photocatalysts and sunlight to convert light energy into useful compounds, and is considered a next-generation renewable energy technology. Shimadzu Corporation explains the challenges in implementing artificial photosynthesis into society, and the need to develop photocatalysts that can effectively utilize sunlight and construct high-efficiency reaction systems. Shimadzu also highlights analytical techniques, focussing on the evaluation of physical properties, excited state, measurements, and quantification of reaction products, including band gap measurement, particle size distribution measurement, charge distribution visualization, and gas chromatography mass spectrometry analysis. Explore the benefits and applications for each analytical technique, as well as detailed descriptions of the products and equipment used.
