In artificial photosynthesis, scientists are essentially conducting the same fundamental process that occurs in natural photosynthesis but with simpler nanostructures. The fabrication of these nanostructures has only recently been possible due to breakthroughs in nanotechnology in the areas of imaging and manipulation. With the core processes in photosynthesis being light gathering, charge separation, and recombination, the goal of scientists has been to create efficient synthetic nanostructures that can function as antennae and reaction centers. Devens Gust and fellow researchers at Arizona State University created a hexad, or six-part, nanoparticle made of four zinc tetraarylporphyrin molecules, (PZP)3-PZC, a free-base porphyrin, and a fullerene molecule, P-C60.
