A team of researchers led by Ryuhei Nakamura at the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science (CSRS) in Japan has made significant strides in the field of sustainable hydrogen extraction. Their research, published in Nature Catalysis, details an innovative method of extracting hydrogen from water using a custom-made catalyst. By manipulating the catalyst’s 3D structure, they achieved a remarkable increase in stability and extended the catalyst’s lifetime by nearly 4,000%. This breakthrough has profound implications for the establishment of a sustainable hydrogen-based energy economy.
