In a critical step towards a truly viable green hydrogen industry the new method splits the seawater directly into hydrogen and oxygen. The new process skips the need for desalination and its associated cost, energy consumption and […]

A serendipitous scientific discovery by researchers at the National University of Singapore could potentially revolutionize the way water is broken down to release hydrogen gas. The team found that light can trigger a new mechanism in a catalytic material used extensively in water electrolysis, where water is broken down into hydrogen and oxygen. The result […]

Scientists at Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena have succeeded in splitting water using an electrocatalyst instead of electrolysis. The way in which a compound inspired by nature produces hydrogen has now been described in detail by an international research team from the University of Jena, Germany and the University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy. These findings are the foundation for […]

Virginia Tech chemists are working on a new study that solves a key, fundamental barrier in the electrochemical water splitting process. Virginia Tech’s Lin Lab can demonstrate a new technique to reassemble, revivify, and reuse a catalyst that allows for energy-efficient water splitting. One proposed paradigm for shifting away from fossil fuels is the hydrogen […]

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 […]
