Nanosheet catalyst brings a hydrogen economy one step closer to reality

Nanosheet catalyst brings a hydrogen economy one step closer to reality:
Wei-Fu Chen examines the atomic structure of the platinum alternative electrocatalyst
Harnessing the power of hydrogen gas presents one of the most promising options available for obtaining a large-scale sustainable energy solution. However, there are numerous and significant challenges present in the production of pure hydrogen, one of the most prominent of which is the high costs associated with the use of rare and expensive chemical elements such as platinum. Accordingly, the team at the Brookhaven National Laboratory set out to create a catalyst with high activity and low costs, that could facilitate the production of hydrogen as a high-density, clean energy source...
