Hydrogen/water interconversion is a key reaction in the context of new energy technologies, including hydrogen fuel cells, water electrolyzers, and water-splitting photoelectrochemical cells. Specifications differ for these technologies to meet economic viability but state-of-the-art prototypes all rely on the powerful catalytic properties of the platinum metal as a catalyst for hydrogen production and uptake. Yet, this scarce and expensive metal is not itself a sustainable resource and its… CONTINUE READING
