Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) researchers have developed a photocatalytic system based on a material in the class of metal-organic frameworks. The system can be used to degrade pollutants present in water while simultaneously producing hydrogen that can be captured and further used. Some of the most useful and versatile materials today are […]

Eindhoven University of Technology researchers have developed iron-based catalysts that substantially reduce operating costs and open the door to capturing the large amounts of CO2 that are generated for the Coal To Liquid Fuel Process (CTL). World energy consumption projections expect coal to stay one of the world’s main energy sources in the coming decades, […]

One useful property that so far has not been observed in perovskites is called “carrier multiplication”, an effect that makes materials much more efficient in converting light into electricity. Perovskites form a group of crystals that have many promising properties for applications in nano-technology. New research performed in collaboration between the University of Amsterdam (UA) […]

The result is expected to contribute to hydrogen mass production through the development of photocatalyst […]

Rice University scientists have demonstrated a new catalyst for making clean-burning hydrogen from ammonia. They describe a plasmonic effect that lowers chemical activation barriers, improves efficiency and could be of general use in other catalysts. The study from Rice’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP) has been published in Science describing the new catalytic nanoparticles, which are […]
