Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) engineers reports they have developed a catalyst by adding a flat platinum interface to NiFe-layered double hydroxide (LDH). The new catalyst increases hydrogen production efficiency and displays 11.2 times higher activity than conventional catalysts. Ang butter bread, made by layering butter and red bean spread, creates a new […]

Washington State University researchers used the ethanol and water mixture and a small amount of electricity in a novel conversion system to produce pure compressed hydrogen. The researcher’s press release claims the new efficient way to produce hydrogen gas from ethanol and water has the potential to make clean hydrogen fuel a more viable alternative […]

North Carolina State University researchers have developed a new technique for extracting hydrogen gas from liquid carriers. The new technique is faster, less expensive and more energy efficient than previous concepts. Milad Abolhasani, corresponding author of a paper on the new technique and an associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NC State offered […]

Imperial College London researchers have developed a hydrogen fuel cell that uses iron instead of rare and costly platinum that should enable greater use of the technology. Hydrogen fuel cells convert hydrogen to electricity with water vapor as the only by-product, making them an attractive green alternative for portable power, particularly for vehicles. However, their […]

From MIT comes a new catalyst for the oxygen side of splitting water to make free hydrogen. The material could replace rare metals and lead to more economical production of carbon-neutral fuels. The researchers have developed a new type of catalyst material, called a metal hydroxide-organic framework (MHOF), which is made of inexpensive and abundant […]
