Ohio State University scientists have figured out a cheaper, more efficient way to conduct a chemical reaction at the heart of many biological processes, which may lead to better ways to create biofuels from plants. Scientists around the world have been trying for years to create biofuels and other bioproducts more cheaply. The Ohio State […]

A new University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign study introduced an electrochemical reaction, enhanced by polymers, to improve CO2-to-ethylene conversion efficiency over previous attempts. For years, researchers have worked to repurpose excess atmospheric carbon dioxide into new chemicals, fuels and other products traditionally made from hydrocarbons harvested from fossil fuels. The recent push to mitigate the […]

Efficiently mass-producing hydrogen from water is closer to becoming a reality thanks to new findings. The research came from Oregon State University College of Engineering researchers and collaborators at Cornell University and the Argonne National Laboratory. The scientists used advanced experimental tools to forge a clearer understanding of an electrochemical catalytic process that’s cleaner and […]

Researchers at The City College of New York (CCNY), inspired by nature, can now demonstrate a synthetic strategy to stabilize bio-inspired solar energy harvesting materials. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Chemistry, could be a significant breakthrough in functionalizing molecular assemblies for future solar energy conversion technologies. In almost every corner of the world, […]

A Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin team has now presented a method to visualize convection in the electrolyte and to reliably simulate it in advance with a multiphysics model. Hydrogen produced by using solar energy could contribute to a climate neutral energy system of the future. But there are hurdles on the way from laboratory scale to large-scale […]
