  • N.C. research-’artificial leaf’ & electricity

    Are you aware that a North Carolina State University team has demonstrated that water gel-based solar devices (known as: “artificial leaves”) can work like solar cells to create electricity? The analysis has been published on-line in the Journal of Materials Chemistry by Doctor Orlin Velev, an Invista Professor of Chemical and Bio-molecular Engineering. The studies prove the concept ...


  • Terra leaf: art and science for climate change

    Terra Leaf is a new start-up venture, with a strong foot in both the art and science world. Not only is Terra Leaf currently developing cutting-edge carbon capture and sequestration technology but the visionaries are also preparing for an art exhibition next month in Mexico. The start up’s product mimics a leaf’s natural processes to remove carbon-dioxide from the air and turn it into ...

  • Trees could be used to monitor air pollution simply and cheaply

    It may be possible to use trees to monitor levels of air pollution in cities, new research suggests. A Belgian study found evidence that leaves of urban trees change both chemically and physiologically when exposed to different levels of air pollution. If these changes are carefully quantified, trees could provide cheap and widespread ‘bio-indicators’, the study’s authors ...
