Joint research in Oklahoma looks to the sun to boost energy content in biofuel

Southern Nazarene University (SNU) and Oklahoma State University (OSU) are collaborating to investigate the possibility of using sunlight as a way of enriching the energy content of biofuel. The primary goal for this summer is to develop a method for the conversion of acrylate esters into cyclobutanes. The question at the heart of this research is whether the professors can develop a chemical reaction that stores photochemical energy similar to like that of conversion of carbon dioxide into sugars in plants.
