Nanocrystals Improve Hydrogen Production

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 9, 2012 — Adding nanocrystals can make the light-driven production of hydrogen more robust and cost-effective, a team at the University of Rochester discovered. The work advances what is sometimes considered the “Holy Grail” of energy science — efficiently using sunlight to provide clean, carbon-free energy for vehicles and anything that requires electricity. Because it gives off no greenhouse emissions and can easily be converted into electrical energy, hydrogen is seen as an attractive fuel source for the future. But compounds essential to process are very short-lived,...Read full article
