This makes it possible to develop strategies for the design of robust and cost-effective catalysts for hydrogen production. The working groups of Prof. Wolfgang Schuhmann and Dr. Ulf-Peter Apfel from the RUB and the […]

Colorado State University researchers have found new information for biofuels produced from switchgrass, a non-edible native grass that grows in many parts of North America. Over the past thirty years the corn industry has driven biofuels produced from corn as a fuel source to power motor vehicles and, perhaps soon, airplanes. Meanwhile the global warming […]

KTH The Royal Institute of Technology researchers have successfully tested a new material that can be used for cheap and large-scale production of hydrogen. Currently precious metals are the standard catalyst materials used for extracting hydrogen from water. The problem is these materials such as platinum, ruthenium and iridium – are too expensive. A team […]

University of Delaware’s Yushan Yan and his coauthors provide an authoritative overview of work done in the areas of hydrogen oxidation and evolution, present key questions for debate, and provide paths for future innovation in the field. The team is aiming to tackle a fundamental debate in key reactions behind fuel cells and hydrogen production, […]

Drexel University researchers have uncovered exceptionally efficient gas separation properties in a nanomaterial called MXene that could be incorporated into the membranes used to purify hydrogen. Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements on Earth and an exceptionally clean fuel source. While it is making its way into the fuel cells of electric cars, […]
