Low-priced production of medicines seems too good to be true, but chemists at TU/e have the goal to achieve it.
“Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.”- Immanuel Kant
TU/e Chemists have a mini factory where they are doing research on making chemical substances from the energy of sunlight and they have reached success. It is a huge accomplishment for the chemists of TU/e.
The chemists took the concept from photosynthesis. It is a known fact that the plants undergo photosynthesis. In this process the leaves absorb the sunlight and it helps the plant to undergo a chemical reaction to produce food for the plant. The chemists have managed to mimic this process.
For decennia scientists have tried to get energy from sunlight to produce chemical substances, now with the LSC molecules this seems to work.
It is the idea to produce medicines and agriculturall protection chemicals in the future with the use of sun light.
