Tel-Aviv University researchers have developed an innovative material that is eco-friendly, completely biological and non-toxic, and causes no harm to the body’s tissues. The material is as strong as titanium and extremely flexible. The new development will allow for the charging of pacemakers using only the heartbeat, eliminating the need for batteries. The new material […]

The approach, developed by scientists at Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Technology (DGIST), with colleagues in Korea and India is cost-effective and biocompatible, and can help charge […]

A team, led by the University of Tokyo in Japan, has developed a hybrid material that effectively transports protons at high temperatures and humidity – two major challenges of prior work. Protons are the next big thing when it comes to fuel cell technology. The subatomic exchange produces power on a scale that challenges contemporary […]

A Pohang University of Science & Technology research team revealed the phase transition and metal ex-solution phenomena to increase the catalytic activity in fuel cells. Fuel cells, which are attracting attention as an eco-friendly energy source, obtain electricity and heat simultaneously through the reverse reaction of water electrolysis. So, the catalyst that enhances the reaction […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Incheon National University scientists encapsulated a methanol fuel cell catalyst in a protective molecular sieve that selectively prevents undesired reactions. Direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs), which produce electricity using methanol, will be an alternative solution in the transition away from fossil fuels and toward a ‘hydrogen’ economy. However, undesired methanol oxidation on the cathode […]
