Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) researchers have built a palladium- magnesium oxide core-shell combination catalyst for fuel cells. The palladium nanoparticle cores are not sintered together and maintain spaces between each another because of the magnesium oxide shells. The development maximizes their ability to react with chemicals. The OIST team offers that fuel […]






Colorado School of Mines researchers report to have succeeded in developing affordable and efficient ceramic fuel cells that could be used to power homes from five years worth of work. The research would enable more efficient use of natural gas for power generation through the use of fuel cells that convert the chemical energy of […]






University of Wisconsin-Madison (UWM) chemists have introduced a new fuel cell catalyst approach that uses a molecular catalyst system instead of solid catalysts. The team is on a quest for better, less expensive ways to store and use energy where platinum and other precious metals play an important role. Platinum and other precious metals serve […]






A research team has developed a hyper-stretchable elastic-composite energy harvesting device called a nanogenerator. A team led by Professor Keon Jae Lee of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and Seoul National University (SNU) have collaborated and demonstrated a facile methodology to obtain a […]






University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) researchers reported progress on a novel form of a new plastic at the 249th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The plastic has been used in filters and tubing, but also has an unusual trait: it can produce electricity when pulled or pressed. This […]
