Simultaneous reduction of carbon-dioxide (CO2) and water using sunlight has been an important step in life cycle on earth. This single reaction performed by plants in an energetically frugal, albeit inefficient, process allows simultaneous balance of CO2 gas and energy harvesting from the primary source of energy on earth, the sun.
