The great thing is shown by researchers from Harvard University, which has succeeded in creating an artificial leaf with its advanced capabilities. In fact, they claim that the bionic leaf 2.0 which was developed by them has the ability to more efficiently when compared to the process of photosynthesis that occurs on a regular leaf.

The bionic leaf 2.0 project is led by Daniel Nocera along with Pamela Silver is a professor of biochemistry and systems biology at Harvard Medical School. The first generation bionic leaf developed in 2013 can absorb sunlight which is then used to decompose water and produce hydrogen gas and oxygen. Thanks to the addition of special bacteria, the bionic leaf 2.0 is now able to convert hydrogen into liquid fuel.
