Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf researchers’ laboratory experiments and a parabolic flight campaign have enabled an international team of researchers to gain new insights into water electrolysis, in which hydrogen is obtained from water by applying electric energy. Water electrolysis could play a key role in an energy transition if efficiency improvements can be achieved. The findings offer […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München researchers have found a kind of electrode made of a highly porous material that does an excellent job with just a hint of expensive iridium. Iridium is an ideal catalyst for the electrolytic production of hydrogen from water – but it is extremely expensive. Today, the path to the effective electrolysis of […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of California, Davis chemists are one step closer to recreating nature’s most efficient machinery for generating hydrogen gas. Researchers from the Oregon Health and Science University also contributed to this study. This new development may help clear the path for the hydrogen fuel industry to move into a […]

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) researchers have now developed a pure platinum alternative with a 20x higher activity. It is a catalyst with hollow nanocages of an alloy of nickel and platinum. Working together with Chinese, Singaporean and Japanese researchers, TU/e researcher Emiel Hensen wants to use this new catalyst to develop a refrigerator-size electrolyzer […]

Research from the University of Illinois, the University of California, Davis and contributions from the Oregon Health and Science University has chemists one step closer to recreating nature’s most efficient machinery for generating hydrogen gas. This new development may help clear the path for the hydrogen fuel industry to move into a larger role in […]
