Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Argonne National Lab scientists have made a pivotal discovery that could extend the lifetime of fuel cells that power electric vehicles by eliminating the dissolution of platinum catalysts. Vehicles powered by polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, but despite increasing public interest in PEMFC-powered transportation, current performance of materials that […]

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 […]

Israel Institute of Technology is designing a photocatalyst that can break down water into hydrogen fuel. Recently the scientists achieved record efficiency for solar-to-fuel conversion, and now they want to incorporate the machinery of photosynthesis to push it further. Global economic growth comes with increasing demand for energy, but stepping up energy production can be […]

As more states in the U.S. push for increased reliance on variable renewable energy in the form of wind or solar power, long-term energy storage may play an important role in assuring […]

Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids scientists have been looking into the rational design of new types of OER (Oxygen Evolution Reaction) electrocatalysts and addressing fundamental questions about the key reactions in energy conversion. Their paper, Al2Pt for Oxygen Evolution in Water Splitting: a Strategy for Creating Multi‐functionality in Electrocatalysis, has been published […]
