Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have uncovered an extraordinary self-improving property that transforms an ordinary semiconductor into a highly efficient and stable artificial photosynthesis device. Three years ago, scientists at the University of Michigan discovered an artificial photosynthesis device made of silicon and gallium nitride (Si/GaN) that harnesses sunlight into carbon-free hydrogen for fuel cells […]

One prospective source of renewable energy is hydrogen gas produced from water with the aid of sunlight. Researchers at Linköping University, Sweden, have developed a material, nanoporous cubic silicon carbide, that exhibits promising properties to capture solar energy and split water for hydrogen gas production. The team’s research paper has been published in the journal […]

Nagoya Institute of Technology researchers have developed a novel membrane that efficiently purifies hydrogen fuel from a mixture of gases. Hydrogen is a clean source of fuel, but its purification has been challenging until now. Now, a group of scientists has found a solution – by characterizing a hybrid separation membrane for purifying hydrogen from […]

Efficiently mass-producing hydrogen from water is closer to becoming a reality thanks to new findings. The research came from Oregon State University College of Engineering researchers and collaborators at Cornell University and the Argonne National Laboratory. The scientists used advanced experimental tools to forge a clearer understanding of an electrochemical catalytic process that’s cleaner and […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Incheon National University scientists have designed a novel hydrogen sensor using holey 2D zinc oxide nanosheets, which has high sensitivity and fast response time, and has the potential for application in high-quality H2 sensors in the future. Although touted as the best clean energy carrier, the explosive nature of dihydrogen gas (H2) warrants highly […]
