You don’t have to be a scientists to know how to turn water into hydrogen and oxygen, we all heard about electrolysis. However, this process can’t help up get hydrogen fuel therefore we need a way to produce hydrogen fuel using sunlight, water, and probably the most important ingredient, a very efficient catalyst.
In time, scientists tried to use many metal-based catalysts, polymer materials, or other synthetic polymer materials, but the former are expensive, the second are inefficient, and the latter only work in the ultraviolet region of the solar spectrum.
Now, a team of scientists from the Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany, and Fouzhou University in Fouzhou, China are claiming that they have developed a polymer material that could is perfect as a catalyst because it’s abundant in nature, easy to get and to work with, and non-toxic.
