University of Adelaide’s Professor Shizhang Qiao and Associate Professor Yao Zheng from the School of Chemical Engineering led an international team that successfully split seawater without pre-treatment to produce green hydrogen. Professor Qiao said, “We have split natural seawater into oxygen and hydrogen with nearly 100 per cent efficiency, to produce green hydrogen by electrolysis, […]

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 […]

The Ames Laboratory at Iowa State University has announced a new hybrid catalyst that converts carbon dioxide into ethylene in one pot. The catalyst was developed by scientists from Ames National Laboratory, Iowa State University, University of Virginia, and Columbia University. This catalyst supports the world net-zero carbon initiative by using carbon dioxide (CO2) recycling […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science demonstrated a new pathway to creating durable, efficient perovskite photovoltaics at industrial scale. The process uses the first effective use of lead acetate as a precursor in making formamidinium-caesium perovskite solar cells. The team at Exciton Science, based at Monash University, were able to create perovskite […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Argonne National Laboratory scientists explain upgrading the hunt for electrolytes with artificial intelligence that could enable revolutionary battery chemistries. A new paper published in Science, Meng and colleagues laid out their vision for electrolyte design in future generations of batteries. Designing a battery is a three-part process. You need a positive electrode, you need […]
