Researchers recently developed a new type of catalyst that could break ammonia under lower temperatures. This catalyst will pave the way to a greener future by harvesting hydrogen fuels effortlessly without emissions.
One of the challenges in curbing the worsening effects of climate change is in reducing our continuous carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions - and a new technology promises a green and sustainable solution in doing so.
A highly efficient catalyst that converts propane gas into heavier hydrocarbons has been developed by Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. (KAUST) researchers. It significantly speeds up a chemical reaction known as alkane metathesis, which could be used to produce liquid fuels.
University of Houston physicists has discovered a catalyst that can split water into hydrogen and oxygen, composed of easily available, low-cost materials and be operating far more efficiently than previous catalysts.
