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, […]

In a bold press release Washington State University (WSU) researchers announced they have found a way to more efficiently generate hydrogen from water – an important key to making clean energy more viable. Using inexpensive nickel and iron, the researchers developed a very simple, five-minute method to create large amounts of a high-quality nanofoam catalyst […]

University of Twente researchers have made significant efficiency improvements to the technology used to generate solar fuels. This involves the direct conversion of energy from sunlight into a usable fuel (in this case, hydrogen). Using only earth-abundant materials, they developed the most efficient conversion method to date. The trick was to decouple the site where […]
