Lehigh University engineers have utilized a single enzyme biomineralization process to create a catalyst that uses the energy of captured sunlight to split water molecules to produce hydrogen. The synthesis process is performed at room temperature and under ambient pressure, overcoming the sustainability and scalability challenges of previously reported methods. Solar-driven water splitting is a […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) researchers have developed a photocatalytic system based on a material in the class of metal-organic frameworks. The system can be used to degrade pollutants present in water while simultaneously producing hydrogen that can be captured and further used. Some of the most useful and versatile materials today are […]

University of Oxford researchers have found a new class of materials called halide double perovskites may have just the right properties to split water. In a process called photocatalytic water splitting, sunlight separates water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen and oxygen can then be recombined in a fuel cell to release energy. According to […]

Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) and URV researchers have designed a new catalyst that reduces the cost of electrolytic hydrogen production. The new catalysts reduce the amount of electricity needed to break the chemical bonds, speed up the reaction and minimize the energy waste. Galán-Mascarós explained, “Normally, hydrogen is obtained from using a […]

Researchers at Caltech and the Berkeley Lab have in just two years nearly doubled the number of materials known to have potential for use in solar fuels. Using a new high-throughput method of identifying new materials, a team of researchers led by Caltech’s John Gregoire and Berkeley Lab’s Jeffrey Neaton and Qimin Yan have found […]
