Scientist develop new catalyst for hydrogen production

Scientists from Kyushu University and Kumamoto University in Japan have developed a new catalyst capable of assisting three key reactions for using hydrogen in energy and industry.

Inspired by three types of enzymes in nature, the research hopes to help discover unknown relationships among catalysts, therefore, paving a way for the efficient use of hydrogen.

In the study, the researchers highlight that the one of the key factors for establishing hydrogen as a next-generation energy source of the development of catalysts.

The research explains that catalysts play a role not only in splitting hydrogen molecules to generate electricity in fuel cells but also in putting hydrogen atoms together to form fuel.
