Technology to convert sunlight into hydrogen

8 Nov '21
The Institute of Catalysis in Novosibirsk is working on new technology enabling sunlight-assisted hydrogen production. Hydrogen is considered one of the most promising and eco-friendly energy sources.

The photocatalyst the Siberian chemists are developing is a mixture of cadmium sulfide and manganese. This is the key trigger in the reaction, the team said. All the catalyst requires to start acting is sunlight. A series of chemical transformations then follows to produce hydrogen.

A parallel objective the researchers are pursuing in this project is looking for ways of converting carbon dioxide into valuable organic substances required in an array of chemical processes an effort that in long-term prospects could help lower carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere, thus contributing to the global fight against greenhouse gas emissions.
