Double-layered catalyst generates more hydrogen

Hydrogen-generating catalysts can create synergistic effects when different materials are layered with their unique properties. Recently, a Korean research team has developed a technology to enhance the hydrogen generation ...

A unique catalyst paves the way for plastic upcycling

A recently developed catalyst for breaking down plastics continues to advance plastic upcycling processes. In 2020, a team of researchers led by Ames Laboratory scientists developed the first processive inorganic catalyst ...

'Double decoration' enhances industrial catalyst

Adding lead and calcium to an industrial catalyst dramatically improves its ability to support propylene production at very high temperatures, making it stable and active for a month.

Study reveals platinum's role in clean fuel conversion

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stony Brook University (SBU), and other collaborating institutions have uncovered dynamic, atomic-level details of how an important platinum-based ...

Materials scientists create stronger cobalt for fuel cells

A multi-institutional research team led by materials scientists from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has designed a highly active and durable catalyst that doesn't rely on costly platinum to spur the necessary ...

New research shows the limitations of coordination in chemistry

A common assumption in chemistry is that the coordination number of a catalyst's surface determines the reactivity of the reaction it catalyzes. Strikingly, chemists from Leiden University have now proven that this is not ...
