Chemistry Drawing

Inspired by photosynthesis, we describe a photon-to-potential energy transformer, which allows arylcyclohexenes to serve as energy currency to drive endergonic ground state processes.  The potential of this strategy is exemplified in the conversion of CO2 to value-added urethanes while making water as the only by-product.  After a conversation about this work young artists Ella Weaver and Ariana Prier created some art, with the hope that it might land on a journal cover.  Unfortunately, it was not selected, but it is fun to watch its creation.  Thanks ladies.
