Imperial College London researchers have developed a hydrogen fuel cell that uses iron instead of rare and costly platinum that should enable greater use of the technology. Hydrogen fuel cells convert hydrogen to electricity with water vapor as the only by-product, making them an attractive green alternative for portable power, particularly for vehicles. However, their […]

From MIT comes a new catalyst for the oxygen side of splitting water to make free hydrogen. The material could replace rare metals and lead to more economical production of carbon-neutral fuels. The researchers have developed a new type of catalyst material, called a metal hydroxide-organic framework (MHOF), which is made of inexpensive and abundant […]

Cornell University researchers have found a nitrogen doped carbon-coated nickel anode can catalyze an essential reaction in hydrogen fuel cells at a fraction of the cost of the precious metals currently used. The new discovery could accelerate the widespread use of hydrogen fuel cells, which hold great promise as efficient, clean energy sources for vehicles […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of California – Santa Cruz scientists’ study shows that an easily produced composite of gallium and aluminum creates aluminum nanoparticles that react rapidly with water at room temperature to yield large amounts of hydrogen. For years, researchers have tried to find efficient and cost-effective ways to harness the extreme reactivity of aluminum to […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have developed a new water-splitting process with a material that maximizes the efficiency of producing hydrogen. The researchers expect to make it an affordable and accessible option for industrial partners that want to convert to green hydrogen for renewable energy storage instead of conventional, carbon-emitting hydrogen production from natural […]
