University of Cambridge researchers have developed an ‘artificial leaf’ that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water to make syngas. Syngas is a widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels that could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to gasoline. The carbon-neutral device sets a new benchmark in the […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Researchers at Kyoto University, along with colleagues at the University of Tokyo and Jiangsu Normal University in China have developed a new material that can selectively capture carbon dioxide (CO2) molecules and efficiently convert them into useful organic materials. The team’s study paper has been published in the journal Nature Communications. The press release […]

A Tokyo Institute of Technology research team has developed an eco-friendly device that uses solar energy to catalyze an electrochemical oxidation reaction with high efficiency. Green energy sources constitute a hot research field globally because of the current environmental impetus and the pressure to avoid non-renewable energy (fossil fuels). Researchers have been seeking ways to […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… American Institute of Physics researchers have looked to lithium sulfur batteries because of sulfur’s high theoretical capacity and energy density to develop higher capacity batteries. Lithium ion batteries aren’t keeping up with energy demands from higher power electronic devices, electric vehicles and smart electric grids. To develop higher capacity batteries, researchers have looked to […]

Ohio State University researchers, in collaboration with scientists around the world, have made a discovery that could provide new insights into how superconductors might move energy more efficiently to power homes, industries and vehicles. Their work showed that graphene – a material composed of a single layer of carbon atoms – is more likely to […]
