The cathodic process in electrochemical water electrolyzers, the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), is an extremely important reaction as it produces clean H2 gas that can be utilized in a fuel cel…
There are many measures you can implement to conserve water and lead a sustainable lifestyle. Obvious options include rainwater harvesting, greywater recycling, and little conscientious lifestyle changes like shortening showers and going easy on the sprinklers and repairing faulty leaks ASAP.

Leiden chemists Marc Koper and Ian McCrum have discovered that the degree to which a metal binds to the oxygen atom of water is decisive for how well the chemical conversion of water to molecular hydrogen takes place. This insight helps to develop better catalysts for the production of sustainable hydrogen, an important raw material for the chemical industry and the fuel needed for environmentally friendly hydrogen cars. Publication in Nature Energy. For years there has been a heated debate in the literature: how to speed up the electrochemical production of hydrogen on platinum electrodes in an alkaline environment?
