RUB chemists develop novel catalyst with two functions

Carbon compound can facilitate water electrolysis and hydrogen combustion
Hope for more cost-efficient metal-air batteries and fuel cells

Chemists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have made a decisive step towards more cost-efficient regenerative fuel cells and rechargeable metal-air batteries. They developed a new type of catalyst on the basis of carbon, which can facilitate two opposite reactions: electrolysis of water and combustion of hydrogen with oxygen. A catalyst of this kind might make the storage of wind and solar energy and the manufacture of cost-efficient batteries, for example for electric cars, possible. The team published their report in the “International Edition” of the magazine “Angewandte Chemie”.
