One prospective source of renewable energy is hydrogen gas produced from water with the aid of sunlight. Researchers at Linköping University, Sweden, have developed a material, nanoporous cubic silicon carbide, that exhibits promising properties to capture solar energy and split water for hydrogen gas production. The team’s research paper has been published in the journal […]

A Pohang University of Science & Technology research team revealed the phase transition and metal ex-solution phenomena to increase the catalytic activity in fuel cells. Fuel cells, which are attracting attention as an eco-friendly energy source, obtain electricity and heat simultaneously through the reverse reaction of water electrolysis. So, the catalyst that enhances the reaction […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Incheon National University scientists encapsulated a methanol fuel cell catalyst in a protective molecular sieve that selectively prevents undesired reactions. Direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs), which produce electricity using methanol, will be an alternative solution in the transition away from fossil fuels and toward a ‘hydrogen’ economy. However, undesired methanol oxidation on the cathode […]

University of Bern has led an international research team that has succeeded in developing an electrocatalyst for hydrogen fuel cells which, in contrast to the catalysts commonly used today, does not require a carbon carrier and is therefore much more stable. The new process is industrially applicable and can be used to further optimize fuel […]

Imperial College London researchers have demonstrated how machine learning could help design lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells with better performance. The new machine learning algorithm allows researchers to explore possible designs for the microstructure of fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries, before running 3D simulations that help researchers make changes to improve performance. Improvements could include […]
