The industry has been traditionally deploying platinum alloys as catalysts for oxygen reduction, which is for example essential in fuel cells or metal-air batteries. Expensive and rare, that metal imposes strict restrictions on manufacture. Researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung have discovered an alloy made up of five elements that is noble…

A research group led by Prof. SUN Gongquan and Prof. WANG Suli from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences invented a new electrochemical power sources based on the in-situ coupling of direct methanol fuel cells and supercapacitors. Their findings were published in ACS Energy Letters. High power density and high energy…

RUDN Chemist Tests a New Nanocatalyst for Production of Hydrogen

By | News, Research News | No Comments October 18, 2018 | 3 min read October 18, 2018 | 3 min read

A chemist from RUDN was the first to use catalysts with ruthenium nanoparticles to obtain hydrogen under the influence of visible light and UV radiation. In the future, such catalysts may be used for large-scale production of hydrogen fuel under the influence of sunlight. The results of the study were published in Applied Catalysis B: Environmental….
