Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Osaka University researchers have demonstrated a proof-of-concept for a novel molecular hydrogen production method that bypasses the need for expensive purification steps. They developed a system where hydrogen is separated and stored in liquid organic hydrogen carriers by catalysis of triaryl boranes in one seamless process. The results of this work will help facilitate […]

Rice University engineers have developed a stable water-splitting catalyst for clean hydrogen generation that could replace expensive iridium catalysts. Creating a hydrogen economy is no small task, but Rice University engineers have discovered a method that could make oxygen evolution catalysis in acids, one of the most challenging topics in water electrolysis for producing clean […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Tokyo Institute of Technology researchers have developed a metal nitride catalyst containing an active metal (Ni) on a lanthanum nitride support that is stable in presence of moisture. The goal is to cut the energy requirements of the Haber-Bosch process, which converts nitrogen and hydrogen to ammonia. Plus, since the catalyst doesn’t contain ruthenium, […]

A serendipitous scientific discovery by researchers at the National University of Singapore could potentially revolutionize the way water is broken down to release hydrogen gas. The team found that light can trigger a new mechanism in a catalytic material used extensively in water electrolysis, where water is broken down into hydrogen and oxygen. The result […]

University of Würzburg scientists have made progress on the path to sunlight-driven production of hydrogen. The chemists present a new enzyme-like molecular catalyst for water oxidation. The team’s research paper has been published in Nature Catalysis. Hydrogen is considered by some as a promising alternative to fossil fuels. It can be produced from water using […]
