Description: KU Natural History Museum & Free State Brewing Co., A Science on Tap Event: Artificial Photosynthesis: Turning Sunlight Into Fuel With Dr. James Blakemore, Assistant Professor with the KU Department of Chemistry Science on Tap Wednesday, April 18, 7:30pm Free State Brewing Company, 636 Massachusetts Street, Lawrence, Kansas 66044 Over millions of years, plants developed what is likely the most efficient power supply in the world: photosynthesis. The process converts sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water into energy. Scientists have been working to mimic photosynthesis, but resulting in an altered output (liquid fuel). With growing worldwide interest in sustainability, research in artificial photosynthesis is becoming more and more important. Join us for a discussion about artificial photosynthesis with Dr. James Blakemore, Assistant Professor in the KU Department of Chemistry. We will explore some of the ideas behind the technologies that allow conversion of sunlight directly into useful chemicals and fuels.
