Researchers from Denmark and Stanford show how to produce industrial quantities of hydrogen without emitting carbon into the atmosphere University researchers from two continents have engineered an efficient and environmentally friendly catalyst for the production of molecular hydrogen (H2), a compound used extensively in modern industry to manufacture fertilizer and refine crude oil into gasoline. Although hydrogen is abundant element, it is generally not found as the pure gas H2but is...

Atomic-Scale Catalysts Could Create Cheap Hydrogen
2014-01-23 14:51:42

North Carolina State University Researchers at North Carolina State University have shown that a one-atom thick film of molybdenum sulfide (MoS2) may work as an effective catalyst for creating hydrogen. The work opens a new door for the production of cheap hydrogen. Hydrogen holds great promise as an energy source, but the production of hydrogen from water electrolysis – freeing hydrogen from water with electricity – currently relies in large part on the use of expensive platinum...

2-proton Bit Controlled By Single Copper Atom
2014-01-17 12:27:57

Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences Just a single foreign atom located in the vicinity of a molecule can change spatial arrangement of its atoms. In a spectacular experiment, an international team of researchers was able to change persistently positions of the nuclei of hydrogen atoms in a porphycene molecule by approaching a single copper atom to the molecule. A subatomic bit formed by two protons tunneling inside a simple organic molecule can be switched...

New Solar Energy System May Provide Power 24 Hours A Day
2014-01-15 07:08:36

[ Watch the Video: How To Get 24 Hours Of Solar Power ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While solar power has long been considered a viable alternative to fossil fuels, a limited number of daylight hours has kept it from becoming a 24-hour source of electricity. Now, researchers from the Energy Frontier Research Center at the University of North Carolina have reportedly developed a system that converts the sun’s energy into hydrogen fuel that can be stored for...

Solar energy appears to be the only form of renewable that can be exploited at level that matches the world's growing needs. However, it is equally necessary to find efficient ways to store solar energy in order to ensure a consistent energy supply when sunlight is scarce. One of the most efficient ways to achieve this is to use solar energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, and get the energy back by consuming hydrogen in a fuel cell. But collecting solar energy on a large and...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A team of French scientists have discovered a method that will allow for the quick production of hydrogen – a discovery that they claim could help power fuel cells, provide propellant for rockets and perhaps even help meet the world’s energy needs without the emission of greenhouse gases. The researchers, who will present their findings this week at the 2013 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in San Francisco, have...

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...

Astatine is a radioactive chemical element. The symbol for Astatine is At and its atomic number is 85. Astatine is the heaviest halogen discovered. It was first produced by Dale R. Corson, Kenneth Ross Mackenzie, and Emilio Segrè in 1940. Although astatine is produced by radioactive decay in nature, it is typically found only in miniscule amounts due to its short half-life (the time it takes for one half of the atoms of a given radioactive substance to decay or disintegrate). Trace amounts...
