Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online University of Houston researchers, writing in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, report they have found a catalyst that can quickly generate hydrogen from water using sunlight, potentially creating a clean and renewable energy source. The study involved the use of cobalt oxide nanoparticles to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. Jiming Bao, lead author of the paper and an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and...

Researchers Shed New Light On Solar Water-splitting Process
2013-12-02 17:11:15

University of Oregon With the help of a new method called "dual-electrode photoelectrochemistry," University of Oregon scientists have provided new insight into how solar water-splitting cells work. An important and overlooked parameter, they report, is the ion-permeability of electrocatalysts used in water-splitting devices. Their discovery could help replace a trial-and-error approach to paring electrocatalysts with semiconductors with an efficient method for using sunlight to...

Copper Nanowires Offer Efficient, Inexpensive Approach To Solar Energy Harvesting
2013-11-22 11:06:49

Duke University Copper adorns the Statue of Liberty, makes sturdy, affordable wiring, and helps our bodies absorb iron. Now, researchers at Duke University would like to use copper to transform sunlight and water into a chemical fuel. Converting solar energy into storable fuel remains one of the greatest challenges of modern chemistry. One of the ways chemists have tried to capture the power of the sun is through water splitting, in which the atoms of H2O are broken apart so the...
