Artificial photosynthesis is a highly promising renewable energy source that converts solar radiation into clean and usable energy, which could potentially resolve the pressing need of mitigating climate change. However, many challenges lie ahead in mimicking the natural photosynthesis system that the Nature has created and perfected over the billions of years. In this webinar, you will learn Shimadzu’s role in assisting customers to overcome the challenges in the energy and environmental sustainability field. Featuring our advanced technologies in GC and HPLC instruments, we will be sharing analytical solutions that offer high sensitivity, robustness, and accuracy for a more comprehensive analysis of photochemical reduction of CO2.
