New water splitting technology created
Scientists at Israel's Weizmann Institute say they have developed a new water splitting technology that eliminates the need for a sacrificial chemical.
Professor David Milstein and colleagues said their new technology achieved a bond generation between oxygen atoms and defined the mechanism by which it takes place.
The complex research, which included Stephan Kohl, Leonid Schwartsburd, Yehoshoa Ben-David, Lev Weiner, Leonid Konstantinovski, Linda Shimon and Mark Iron, appeared in the journal Science.
