Swedish researchers have discovered a new and efficient way to use electrocatalysis to produce hydrogen gas from water
author FuelCellsWorks, July 19, 2018

Swedish researchers have discovered a new and efficient way to use electrocatalysis to produce hydrogen gas from water. Instead of using expensive and difficult-to-obtain platinum electrodes, the new method uses electrodes with nanotruss structures of iron oxide. The research is led by Professor Ulf Helmersson. The Plasma and Coatings Physics research group at Linköping University...
