University of Wisconsin-Madison chemical engineers have developed a model of how catalytic reactions work at the atomic scale. It should be an advance considered a breakthrough in computational chemistry research. The understanding could allow engineers and chemists to develop more efficient catalysts and tune industrial processes – potentially with enormous energy savings, given that 90% […]

Rice University scientists have developed a new single, robust catalyst that splits water into hydrogen and oxygen with Earth-abundant materials that approach the efficiency of more expensive platinum. The electrolytic film produced at Rice and tested at the University of Houston is a three-layer structure of nickel, graphene and a compound of iron, manganese and […]
