Latest Water splitting Stories
At the Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces at EPFL, where scientists invented dye solar cells that mimic photosynthesis in plants, they have also developed methods for generating fuels such as hydrogen through solar water splitting.
scientists have developed a low-cost, emissions-free device that uses an ordinary AAA battery to produce hydrogen by water electrolysis.
An ANU team has successfully replicated one of the crucial steps in photosynthesis, opening the way for biological systems powered by sunlight which could manufacture hydrogen as a fuel.
In the pursuit of a renewable energy source, scientists have been trying to understand the exact mechanism behind photosynthesis, and now a large team of scientists has successfully captured the detailed “snapshots” of the process using a powerful laser.

Generating electricity is not the only way to turn sunlight into energy we can use on demand. The sun can also drive reactions to create chemical fuels, such as hydrogen that can in turn power cars, trucks and trains.
Solar energy appears to be the only form of renewable that can be exploited at level that matches the world's growing needs.
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.
Researchers at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology have successfully split water molecules during multiple thermochemical cycles at low temperatures and seek to create sustainable
