Korea’s Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) researchers presented a new strategy for enhancing catalytic activity using tungsten suboxide as a single-atom catalyst (SAC). This strategy, which significantly improves hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in the metal platinum (pt) by 16.3 times, sheds light on the development of new electrochemical catalyst technologies. The research group’s […]

Yale University researchers say rust has long been seen as a potentially attractive material for solar water splitting, a key process that plants employ in photosynthesis. The search for sustainable approaches to generating new fuels has brought scientists back to one of the most abundant materials on Earth – reddish iron oxide in the form […]

MIT researchers have devised a new way of removing carbon dioxide from a stream of air. The press release asserts it could provide a significant tool in the battle against climate change. The new system can work on the gas at virtually any concentration level, even down to the roughly 400 parts per million currently […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Researchers at Kyoto University, along with colleagues at the University of Tokyo and Jiangsu Normal University in China have developed a new material that can selectively capture carbon dioxide (CO2) molecules and efficiently convert them into useful organic materials. The team’s study paper has been published in the journal Nature Communications. The press release […]

Scientists at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany and the University of New South Wales in Australia have used nanoparticles to convert carbon dioxide into valuable raw materials. The scientists have adopted the principle from enzymes that produce complex molecules in multi-step reactions. The team transferred this mechanism to metallic nanoparticles, also known as nanozymes. The chemists […]
