Washington State University (WSU) researchers have developed a new way to make low-cost, single-atom catalysts for fuel cells. The advance that could make important clean energy technology more economically viable. The team’s study results have been published in the journal Advanced Energy Materials. Hydrogen fuel cells will be critical for a hydrogen fueled energy economy […]

KTH The Royal Institute of Technology researchers have successfully tested a new material that can be used for cheap and large-scale production of hydrogen. Currently precious metals are the standard catalyst materials used for extracting hydrogen from water. The problem is these materials such as platinum, ruthenium and iridium – are too expensive. A team […]

A University of Wisconsin at Madison research team reports a hydrogen making catalyst containing phosphorus and sulfur – both common elements – and cobalt, a metal that is 1,000 times cheaper than platinum. Like gasoline, natural gas and other petrochemicals, hydrogen could also be used to store energy. Hydrogen could be the ideal fuel: Whether […]

A catalyst discovery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison could be a significant advance in the quest to create a “hydrogen economy” that would use hydrogen to store and transfer energy.  Catalysts speed up chemical reactions without themselves being consumed. Mark Lukowski, a Ph.D. student working with associate professor Song Jin in the UW-Madison chemistry department […]
