Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… City University of Hong Kong scientists have recently developed a novel strategy to engineer stable and efficient ultrathin nanosheet catalysts by forming Turing structures with multiple nanotwin crystals. This innovative discovery paves the way for enhanced catalyst performance for green hydrogen production. The report about the research has been published in Nature Communications. Hydrogen […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have designed a system that can efficiently produce ‘solar thermochemical hydrogen.’ It harnesses the sun’s heat to split water and generate hydrogen – a clean fuel that emits no greenhouse gas emissions. In a study appearing in Solar Energy Journal, the engineers lay out the conceptual design for a system […]

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. […]
