University of Exeter has pioneered a new technique to produce hydrogen from sunlight using a new photo-electrode. The photo-electrode is an electrode that absorbs light before initializing electrochemical transformations to extract the hydrogen from water. The newly invented photo-electrode is made from nanoparticles of the elements lanthanum, iron and oxygen. The researchers believe this new […]

Kumamoto University researchers have succeeded in developing a new catalyst that burns NH3 at a low temperature and produces N2. The results are expected to offer a carbon free fuel and increased renewable energy use. Ammonia (NH3) has attracted attention in recent years as a carbon-free fuel that does not emit carbon dioxide. For use […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) scientists have been able to observe the smallest details of hydrogen production with the synthetic mineral pentlandite. This makes it possible to develop strategies for the design of robust and cost-effective catalysts for hydrogen production. The working groups of Prof. Wolfgang Schuhmann and Dr. Ulf-Peter Apfel from the RUB and the […]

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, […]
