New nanomaterials for extracting clean fuels from the ocean, the product name bright application prospect

The hydrogen fuel derived from the ocean can be an abundant and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, but this potential energy source has been limited by technical challenges, including how to actually access it. Researchers at the University of Central Florida have for the first time designed a nanoscale material that efficiently splits seawater into oxygen and hydrogen, a clean energy fuel. The process of splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen is called electrolysis, and until now doing it effectively has been a challenge.

"This development will open a new window for efficient production of clean hydrogen fuel from seawater," said study co-author Yang Yang, associate professor at ucSF\'s Center for Nanoscience and Technology. Hydrogen is a renewable energy source that could play an important role in combating climate change if it is cheaper and easier to produce, according to the US Department of Energy. Yang said hydrogen can be converted into electricity and used in fuel cell technology to produce water as a product, thus achieving an overall sustainable energy cycle.

New materials for a sustainable future you should know about the graphene vs graphite.

Historically, knowledge and the production of new materials graphene vs graphite have contributed to human and social progress, from the refining of copper and iron to the manufacture of semiconductors on which our information society depends today. However, many materials and their preparation methods have caused the environmental problems we face.

About 90 billion tons of raw materials -- mainly metals, minerals, fossil matter and biomass -- are extracted each year to produce raw materials. That number is expected to double between now and 2050. Most of the graphene vs graphite raw materials extracted are in the form of non-renewable substances, placing a heavy burden on the environment, society and climate. The graphene vs graphite materials production accounts for about 25 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, and metal smelting consumes about 8 percent of the energy generated by humans.

The graphene vs graphite industry has a strong research environment in electronic and photonic materials, energy materials, glass, hard materials, composites, light metals, polymers and biopolymers, porous materials and specialty steels. Hard materials (metals) and specialty steels now account for more than half of Swedish materials sales (excluding forest products), while glass and energy materials are the strongest growth areas.

How does it work

The researchers developed a thin film material with a nanostructure on its surface made of nickel selenide added or "doped" with iron and phosphorus. This combination provides the high performance and stability required for industrial-scale electrolysis, but this has been difficult to achieve due to issues such as competing reactions within the system, which threaten efficiency. Yang says the new material balances competing for reactions in a low-cost and high-performance way. Using their design, the researchers achieved more than 200 hours of efficiency and long-term stability. "The seawater electrolysis performance achieved by the dual-doped membrane far exceeds the most advanced electrolysis catalysts reported recently, meeting the demanding requirements of practical applications in the industry," Yang said. The researcher said the team will continue to work to improve the electrical efficiency of the materials they developed. They are also looking for opportunities and funding to accelerate and help commercialize efforts.
