Korea’s Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) researchers presented a new strategy for enhancing catalytic activity using tungsten suboxide as a single-atom catalyst (SAC). This strategy, which significantly improves hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in the metal platinum (pt) by 16.3 times, sheds light on the development of new electrochemical catalyst technologies. The research group’s […]

Scientists at Stanford University have designed an electrocatalytic mechanism that works like a mammalian lung to convert water into fuel. The research has been published in the journal Joule, showing how it could help existing clean energy technologies run more efficiently. The act of inhaling and exhaling is so automatic for most organisms that it […]

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München scientists have developed novel catalyst based on semiconductor nanoparticles that has been shown to facilitate all the reactions needed for water splitting ‘artificial photosynthesis’. A solar-powered water splitting system is a promising means of generating clean and short term storable fuel. Today there is a demand to develop efficient ways of obtaining and […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Researchers at St John’s College, University of Cambridge have used semi-artificial photosynthesis to explore new ways to produce and store solar energy. They used natural sunlight to convert water into hydrogen and oxygen using a mixture of biological components and human-made technologies. The researchers have successfully split water into hydrogen and oxygen by altering […]

University of Exeter has pioneered a new technique to produce hydrogen from sunlight using a new photo-electrode. The photo-electrode is an electrode that absorbs light before initializing electrochemical transformations to extract the hydrogen from water. The newly invented photo-electrode is made from nanoparticles of the elements lanthanum, iron and oxygen. The researchers believe this new […]
