The possibility of achieving room temperature superconductivity took a tiny step forward with a recent discovery by a team of Penn State physicists and materials scientists. The surprising discovery involved layering a two-dimensional material called molybdenum sulfide with another material called molybdenum carbide. Molybdenum carbide is a known superconductor – electrons can flow through the […]

Nano technology experts from the Stanford School of Engineering and from Denmark’s Aarhus University have found how to liberate hydrogen from water on an industrial scale by using an old catalyst, molybdenum sulfide, for electrolysis. With the new engineering molybdenum sulfide would be an efficient and environmentally friendly catalyst for the production of molecular hydrogen […]
