A City University of Hong Kong research team has successfully mediated poor charge carrier transport at low voltage by adding phosphorus to a metal oxide catalyst. Metal oxides are a promising catalyst for photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting to produce hydrogen as an alternative fuel. However, their effectiveness is restricted at low voltage. Adding phosphorus reduced […]

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne chemical engineers have invented a solar-powered artificial leaf, built on a novel electrode which is transparent and porous. The artificial leaf is capable of harvesting water from the atmosphere for conversion into hydrogen fuel. The semiconductor-based technology is scalable and easy to prepare. The paper reporting the results has been […]

University of Michigan scientists developed a new kind of solar panel achieving 9% efficiency in converting water into hydrogen and oxygen – mimicking a crucial step in natural photosynthesis. Outdoors, it represents a major leap in the technology, nearly 10 times more efficient than solar water-splitting experiments of its kind. But the biggest benefit is […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Cambridge researchers have developed a solar energy powered system that can transform plastic waste and greenhouse gases into sustainable fuels and other valuable products. The system can convert two waste streams into two chemical products at the same time. Its likely to be the first time this has been achieved in a […]

City University of Hong Kong researchers have announced two new hydrogen production catalysts based on mineral gel and ‘crystalline-amorphous’ dual-phase nano-aluminum alloy. In the first topic the researchers’ findings have been published in the scientific journal Nature Communications under the title “Two-dimensional mineral hydrogel-derived single atoms-anchored heterostructures for ultrastable hydrogen evolution”. The first author of […]
