AAA battery-powered water splitter generates clean hydrogen for a clean future

By April Gocha / September 8, 2014

A group of researchers from Stanford is leading a new charge—their simple water splitter only needs a AAA battery and skips the precious metal catalysts present in other splitters, making a cheaper device that shows promise for making a hydrogen future all the more possible.

Other materials stories that may be of interest

By Eileen De Guire / November 13, 2012

Some surprising materials being used in interesting ways. Nanocrystals and nickel catalyst substantially improve light-based hydrogen production Hydrogen is an attractive fuel source because it can easily be converted into electric energy and gives off no greenhouse emissions. A group of chemists at the University of Rochester is adding to its appeal by increasing the…

Ultrathin rust films trap sunlight for splitting water

By Eileen De Guire / November 13, 2012

A photograph of ultrathin film α-Fe2O3 photoanodes in action. Credit: Rothschild; Technion If you think about it, water molecules are a great place to store hydrogen. Now that the “hydrogen economy” is starting to get some traction, the question is how to get the hydrogen “out of storage.” One way to unlock the hydrogen is…
