Harvard University researchers have devised a catalyst that uses renewable electricity to electrochemically transform carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide (CO). CO is a key commodity used in a large number of industrial processes. For Haotian Wang, it’s the perfect raw material. Wang, a Fellow at the Rowland Institute at Harvard, and his research team have […]

Lets Recycle CO2!

Korea’s Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) research team has developed titanium dioxide-based photocatalyst with the highest efficiency in the world that converts carbon dioxide recycling it into methane. The result is expected to be applied to technologies to reduce and reuse carbon dioxide. The team’s titanium dioxide (TiO2) -based high efficiency photocatalyst […]

Kyushu University scientists have synthesized a compound that absorbs near-infrared light to produce hydrogen from water. The compound contains three ruthenium atoms connected by an organic molecule. The absorbed light stimulates electrons to ‘jump’ into orbitals that do not exist in other, similar compounds. This is the first successful use of infrared light to reduce […]
