Splitting Hydrogen From Water Using Sunlight

University of Houston researchers, writing in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, report they have found a catalyst that can quickly generate hydrogen from water using sunlight, potentially creating a clean and renewable energy source.

The study involved the use of cobalt oxide nanoparticles to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. Jiming Bao, lead author of the paper and an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, said the researchers discovered the new photocatalyst and demonstrated the poten...
