News @ NSLS II – Scientists show that single nickel atoms are an efficient, cost-effective catalyst for converting carbon dioxide into useful chemicals
12/05/2017 – Catalyzing Carbon Dioxide
Science Daily – A system that uses renewable electricity to electrochemically transform carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide — a key commodity used in any number of industrial processes — has now been developed by scientists.
Science – Carbon dioxide (CO2) is society’s ultimate waste product, with billions of tons of the stuff injected into the air every year. But recycling it into valuable fuels and chemicals has always required too much energy to make financial sense. Now, researchers have found two efficient ways to convert CO2 into energy-rich byproducts.
11/24/2016 – For platinum catalysts, a tiny squeeze gives a big boost in performance, Stanford study finds
Stanford News – Squeezing a platinum catalyst a fraction of a nanometer nearly doubles its catalytic activity, a finding that could lead to better fuel cells and other clean energy technologies.
06/26/2015 – Has a simple way to make fuel from water been found? Device splits H2O to create hydrogen and oxygen 24 hours a day
Daily Mail – Existing water-splitting devices are costly because they use rare metals; Device by Stanford scientists uses cheaper nickel-iron oxide catalysts; It runs on an ordinary 1.5-volt battery and splits water with 82% efficiency
Stanford Report – Stanford scientists have developed a cheap and efficient way to extract clean-burning hydrogen fuel from water 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
