Researchers at the University of Central Florida have designed for the first time a nanoscale material that can efficiently split seawater into oxygen and hydrogen. Hydrogen fuel derived from the sea could be an abundant and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, but the potential fuel source has been limited by technical challenges, including how to […]

Nagoya Institute of Technology scientists combined two promising photocatalysts to obtain higher solar-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency and durability in a water splitting cell. Both industry and academia have been focusing heavily on hydrogen as a feasible clean alternative fuel. Hydrogen is practically inexhaustible and when reacted to generate energy, only produces water vapor. However, to realize […]

Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) researchers have a breakthrough in technology that efficiently converts liquid ammonia into hydrogen. Their findings have also attracted significant attention from academic research communities owing to its new analysis protocol, capable of finding optimal process environments. In this study, the research team led by Professor Guntae Kim […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Penn State researchers report that they have taken a step toward overcoming the challenge of inexpensive hydrogen production. They report to have taken the step by using supercomputers to find materials that could help accelerate hydrogen separation when water is exposed to light, a process called photocatalysis. Using solar energy to inexpensively harvest hydrogen […]

Scientists at Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena have succeeded in splitting water using an electrocatalyst instead of electrolysis. The way in which a compound inspired by nature produces hydrogen has now been described in detail by an international research team from the University of Jena, Germany and the University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy. These findings are the foundation for […]
