POSTECH researchers develop double-layered nanoporous platinum catalyst that activates hydrogen generation

Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) researchers in South Korea have developed a sandwich structured catalyst that can efficiently generate hydrogen energy by activating water electrolysis.

Hydrogen fuel cells are eco-friendly power-generating devices that generate electricity using chemical reactions that produce water from oxygen and hydrogen.

With the recent release of hydrogen-powered vehicles and the spread of hydrogen fuel cells in households, hydrogen is widely seen as the next-generation energy source to replace fossil fuels.

The way water is decomposed and hydrogen is produced using surplus current obtained from solar or wind power is considered the easiest and most eco-friendly way to produce high purity hydrogen fuel in large quantities.
