Researchers progress on eco-friendly hydrogen fuel production

Researchers at Griffith University in Australia are hoping to unlock a catalytic process which will enhance the breakdown of water into hydrogen and oxygen in order to create hydrogen fuel.

The development follows Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy aims to establish Australia’s hydrogen industry as a major global player by 2030.

In new research published in Nature Communications, Professor Huijun Zhao and Dr Yuhai Dou from the Centre for Clean Environment and Energy are the first to fully unleash the power of CoSe2 nanobelts as an electrocatalyst for the oxidation or breakdown of water.

CoSe2 nanobelts are ultrathin sheets made out of a lattice of cobalt (Co) and selenium (Se).
