Scientists create bionic plants with improved photosynthesis using carbon nanotubes


The world's first "robotic" plants have been created by US scientists and can effectively absorb greater amounts of energy from the sun. These bionic plants are advanced at the cellular level, with new biochemical detection functions and improved photosynthesis capabilities. The MIT biochemists and chemical engineers who created the plants recently revealed their work in the journal Nature Materials, opening up a whole new field of research that they like to call "plant nanobionics."
