Robust and inexpensive catalysts for hydrogen production

Angew. Chem.: How to design materials so they work efficiently.

Teams of scientists from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and the University of Warwick were able to observe the smallest details of hydrogen production with the synthetic mineral pentlandite. This makes it possible to develop strategies for the design of robust and cost-effective catalysts for hydrogen production. The working groups of Prof Dr Wolfgang Schuhmann and Dr Ulf-Peter Apfel from the RUB and the team headed by Prof Dr Patrick R. Unwin from the University of Warwick report in the journal Angewandte Chemie of 9 March 2018.
