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 […]

A Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin team has now presented a method to visualize convection in the electrolyte and to reliably simulate it in advance with a multiphysics model. Hydrogen produced by using solar energy could contribute to a climate neutral energy system of the future. But there are hurdles on the way from laboratory scale to large-scale […]

Virginia Tech chemists are working on a new study that solves a key, fundamental barrier in the electrochemical water splitting process. Virginia Tech’s Lin Lab can demonstrate a new technique to reassemble, revivify, and reuse a catalyst that allows for energy-efficient water splitting. One proposed paradigm for shifting away from fossil fuels is the hydrogen […]

Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids scientists have been looking into the rational design of new types of OER (Oxygen Evolution Reaction) electrocatalysts and addressing fundamental questions about the key reactions in energy conversion. Their paper, Al2Pt for Oxygen Evolution in Water Splitting: a Strategy for Creating Multi‐functionality in Electrocatalysis, has been published […]
