University of Southern California researchers have devised a way to produce and store hydrogen from methanol, without concurrent production of either carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide, by trapping it in organic derivatives of ammonia called amines. 1994 Nobel Prize in Chemistry winner the late George Olah in his last major paper, G. K. Surya Prakash, […]

Weizmann Institute of Science researchers have succeeded in almost fully suppressing the production of hydrogen peroxide during water splitting by controlling the spin of electrons in the reaction. Hydrogen peroxide is one of the main obstacles to making hydrogen production a reality as it is formed while water splitting proceeds. At high enough efficiency the […]

A University of Cambridge team of scientists has developed a way of using solar power to generate hydrogen that is both sustainable and relatively low cost. It simply uses natural light to generate hydrogen from biomass. Dr. Moritz Kuehnel, from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, joint lead author on a new […]

American Technion Society researchers have developed a new method for safely and efficiently producing hydrogen using separate cells for the hydrogen and oxygen. The new technology is expected to significantly reduce the cost of producing the hydrogen and shipping it to the customer. The researchers at Technion are developing a photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell that utilizes […]

Georgia Institute of Technology scientists have transformed an internal combustion engine into a modular reforming reactor that could make hydrogen available to power fuel cells wherever there’s a natural gas supply available. Unlike conventional engines that run at thousands of revolutions per minute, the reactor operates at only a few cycles per minute – or […]
