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, […]

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 […]

Researchers at St John’s College, University of Cambridge designed devices made of readily available oxide and carbon-based materials that can produce clean hydrogen from water over weeks. The findings could help overcome one of the key issues in solar fuel production, where current earth-abundant light-absorbing materials are limited through either their performance or stability. The […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of California – Santa Cruz scientists’ study shows that an easily produced composite of gallium and aluminum creates aluminum nanoparticles that react rapidly with water at room temperature to yield large amounts of hydrogen. For years, researchers have tried to find efficient and cost-effective ways to harness the extreme reactivity of aluminum to […]

Ohio State University scientists have found a new chemical process to turn a stinky, toxic gas into a clean-burning fuel. The process, detailed recently in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Sustainable Chemical Engineering, turns hydrogen sulfide – more commonly called “sewer gas” – into hydrogen fuel. Hydrogen sulfide is emitted from manure piles and […]
