By Shelley, Suzanne NANOTECHNOLOGY A greener, less-expensive method to produce hydrogen fuel may eventually be possible using water with the help of solar energy and nanotube diodes that use the entire spectrum of the sun's energy, according to Penn State scientists. "Other researchers have developed ways to produce hydrogen with mind-boggling efficiency, but their approaches have very high costs," says Craig A. Grimes, professor of electrical engineering. "We are working toward something...

A U.S. official says meeting energy needs in the 21st century while fighting global warming will be one of the biggest challenges humanity has faced. U.S. Department of Energy Undersecretary for Science Raymond Orbach says meeting that challenge will demand "transformational breakthroughs in basic science." He cited as one example the development of artificial versions of photosynthesis, the natural process that plants use to produce energy from water and sunlight. Artificial...

U.S. chemists at Ohio State University say they have developed a catalyst that can very efficiently convert ethanol and other biofuels into hydrogen. Ohio State Professor Umit Ozkan said the new catalyst makes hydrogen from ethanol with 90 percent yield, at a workable temperature and using inexpensive ingredients since it doesn't contain precious metals, such as platinum or rhodium. "Rhodium is used most often for this kind of catalyst and it costs around $9,000 an ounce," Ozkan said. "Our...

By James Thalman Deseret News Using the sun combined with nature's way of turning solar power into life-sustaining energy can be captured, artificially induced and could provide enough power in less than an hour to run the house, the car and bring on an era of true energy independence. The power of solar is not on the grand scale of collectors spread over square acres in the west desert, says Daniel Nocera, a widely cited chemist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who is...
