Yale University researchers say rust has long been seen as a potentially attractive material for solar water splitting, a key process that plants employ in photosynthesis. The search for sustainable approaches to generating new fuels has brought scientists back to one of the most abundant materials on Earth – reddish iron oxide in the form […]

Chemists at Boston College have achieved a series of breakthroughs in their efforts to develop an economical means of harnessing energy using artificial photosynthesis with a nickel iron oxide component.  By narrowing the voltage gap between the two crucial processes of oxidation and reduction the team reports it has come within two-tenths of a volt […]
