A research team led by Kazuhiko Maeda at the Tokyo Institute of Technology has developed a new photocatalyst. They have developed a hybrid material constructed from a metal oxide nanosheet and a light-absorbing molecule for splitting water molecules (H2O) to obtain dihydrogen (H2) under sunlight. Since H2 can be used as carbon-free fuel, this study […]

Shinshu University scientists have successfully split water into hydrogen and oxygen using ultra violet light and meticulously designed catalysts. They accomplished this at the maximum efficiency, meaning there was almost no loss and undesired side reactions. This latest breakthrough in solar hydrogen production could become scalable, thus economically viable hydrogen production could be more likely, […]
