Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Engineers at The University of Texas at El Paso have proposed a low-cost, nickel-based material as a catalyst to help split water more cheaply and efficiently. Their inspiration? A desert succulent known as the prickly pear cactus. The material is described in a new paper in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. More […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign scientists may make an ancient biological enzyme known as nickel-iron hydrogenase play a key role in producing hydrogen. Careful study of the enzyme has led chemists to design a synthetic molecule that mimics the hydrogen gas-producing chemical reaction performed by the enzyme. The team reported their findings in the […]

Ruhr-University Bochum scientists have demonstrated that cube-shaped cobalt oxide nanoparticles are more efficient than spherical ones. The new creates a path for the systematic design of cost-effective and efficient catalysts for green hydrogen. Previously researchers couldn’t determine whether spheres or cubes were the best. This has now changed following the development of a new method. […]

The results entitled ‘First-Principles Microkinetic Modeling Unraveling the Performance of Edge-Decorated Nanocarbons for Hydrogen Production from Methane’ have been published at ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. The study has shown […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Osaka University researchers have demonstrated a proof-of-concept for a novel molecular hydrogen production method that bypasses the need for expensive purification steps. They developed a system where hydrogen is separated and stored in liquid organic hydrogen carriers by catalysis of triaryl boranes in one seamless process. The results of this work will help facilitate […]
