Why bioelectrodes for energy conversion are not stable

Added: 26.05.2018 22:36 | 8 views | 0 comments

Researchers have discovered why bioelectrodes containing the photosynthesis protein complex photosystem I are not stable in the long term. Such electrodes could be useful for converting light energy into chemical energy in an environmentally friendly way. However, the proteins, which are stable in nature, are not functional in semi-artificial systems in the long term because reactive molecules are formed that damage the photosystem I.

Punching holes in graphene to boost hydrogen production

Added: 25.05.2018 20:49 | 1 views | 0 comments

A research team has created an electrode for hydrogen evolution. A nickel-molybdenum (NiMo) catalyst is wrapped in a 'holey' graphene layer containing nanometer-sized holes. The fringes of the holes are chemically active sites, boosting hydrolysis by accelerating charge transfer and H atom adsorption. Meanwhile, graphene protects the NiMo core from dissolving. Through efficient hydrogen generation in acid solution using non-noble metals, the system potentially allows affordable green energy storage.

Stricter approval procedures for plant protection products urged

Added: 25.05.2018 19:49 | 4 views | 0 comments

A number of chemical plant protection products, also known as pesticides, show harmful effects on ecosystems and biodiversity in their current use. Besides climate change, changes in global nutrient cycles and habitat destruction through altered land-use, the utilization of pesticides has also led to a dramatic loss of biodiversity.
