University of Houston researchers have reported an inexpensive hybrid catalyst capable of splitting water to produce hydrogen, suitable for large-scale commercialization. Most systems to split water into its components of hydrogen and oxygen require two catalysts, one to spur a reaction to separate the hydrogen and a second to produce oxygen. The new catalyst, made […]

People in California do not purchase electric vehicles because they are cool, they can buy and use buy EVs because they live in a warm climate. Conventional lithium-ion batteries cannot be rapidly charged […]

University of Akron’s Professor Dr. Yu Zhu’s research group is trying to prevent if a powerhouse of energy – a lithium battery – failed. An electric or hybrid car would be rendered useless and a much-needed biomedical device would hamper or endanger a patient’s health. The power source for things like implanted medical devices, electric […]
