MIT Researchers Radically Improve Performance of Catalyst for Splitting Oxygen from Water
4:13 AM MST | November 7, 2011 | Alex Scott
A team of researchers at MIT have developed a novel catalyst which liberates oxygen from water at a rate at least 10 times that of existing catalysts in a so called Oxygen Evolution Reaction (EOR). The discovery has implications for the advanced energy storage systems including the generation and storage of hydrogen. The catalyst is composed of cobalt, iron and oxygen and other metals. MIT professor Yang Shao-Horn and materials science and engineering graduate student Jin Suntivich, and mechanical engineering graduate student Kevin J. May published their...
