A new technology development by University of Houston researchers could help reduce the cost of hydrogen production and speed up commercialisation.
Scientists already have the technical ability to desalinate seawater and split it to produce hydrogen, but existing methods require multiple steps performed at high temperatures over a length period of time in order to produce a catalyst with the needed efficiency.
This requires substantial amounts of energy and drives up the cost.
Now, researchers from the University of Houston have reported an oxygen evolving catalyst that takes just minutes to grow at room temperature on commercially available nickel foam.
