Making nail polish while powering fuel cells
author FuelCellsWorks, August 03, 2016

AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY--Hydrogen is widely regarded as a promising and clean alternative energy source. The traditional source of hydrogen (H2) for fuel cell use is water, which is split into H2 and oxygen (O2). But O2 is a low-value product. So, this week in ACS Central Science, researchers report a new approach and a new catalyst...

New Material Advances Superconductivity and Fuel Cell Storage
author FuelCellsWorks, August 01, 2016

Washington, D.C.—Scientists have looked for different ways to force hydrogen into a metallic state for decades. A metallic state of hydrogen is a holy grail for materials science because it could be used for superconductors, materials that have no resistance to the flow of electrons, which increases electricity transfer efficiency many times over. For the...
