Berkeley Chemists Develop Potentially Game-changing Catalyst for Making Hydrogen
3:52 AM MDT | April 30, 2010 | Alex Scott
A team of researchers from the University of California (Berkeley, CA), led by Hemamala Karunadasa, has developed a low cost catalyst based on molybdenum for generating hydrogen. The catalyst, a molybdenum-oxo complex can generate gaseous hydrogen either from water at neutral pH-or from sea water. The chemists say they set out to develop an efficient and inexpensive catalyst for producing large volumes of hydrogen from water as a response to the increasing global demand for more sustainable sources of energy. The research was published earlier this week in...
