Researchers at the University of Maryland and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory have developed a lithium-ion battery that uses a water-salt solution as its electrolyte. The chemistry solution also reaches the 4.0 volt mark desired for household electronics, such as laptop computers, without the fire and explosive risks associated with some commercially available non-aqueous lithium-ion […]

University of Delaware (UD) scientists have created a new technology that could make fuel cells cheaper and more durable. Hydrogen-powered fuel cells are a green alternative to internal combustion engines because they produce power through electrochemical reactions, leaving no pollution behind and are far more efficient. Platinum is the most common catalyst in the type […]

Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) researchers have developed a highly efficient reusable catalyst for the production of primary amines. By cutting the amount of undesired by-products, the catalyst is set to revolutionize the production of bio-based fuels, pharmaceuticals, agricultural chemicals and much more. The researchers at Tokyo Tech have developed a highly selective catalyst […]

A new Washington State University thermoelectric generator device could one day turn the heat generated by a wide array of electronics into a usable fuel source. The device is a multicomponent, multilayered composite material called a van der Waals Schottky diode. It converts heat into electricity up to three times more efficiently than silicon – […]
