Easing oxygen's evolution

An electrode made from inexpensive earth-abundant metals bubbles with potential for green fuel production

14-Mar-2022

A metal foam could underpin a low-cost method for generating carbon-free fuels, researchers from KAUST have shown. The team seamlessly coated the foam with iron and cobalt nanomaterials to create a highly active electrode for a device that splits water molecules to release oxygen and hydrogen, a ...

Making light work of emerging micropollutants

Dangerous and environmentally harmful organic micropollutants can be successfully removed from wastewater using high-intensity pulses of light

12-Jan-2022

Carbon-based organic micropollutants in water can be removed by treatment with high-intensity pulses of light in a procedure developed and demonstrated by researchers at KAUST. This photodegradation process was already known to be feasible, but its use was limited by the long treatment times it ...

Methane from Carbon Dioxide

Efficient catalyst for the light-driven methanation of CO2

19-Nov-2021

Recycling carbon dioxide (CO2), especially through conversion to methane (CH4), is compelling while anthropogenic CO2 emissions are still rising. A useful process for this transformation is photothermal methanation, in which CO2 and hydrogen are catalytically converted into CH4 and water upon ...

Electrochemical cell harvests lithium from seawater

The system offers an economical way to source essential battery material

07-Jun-2021

Lithium is a vital element in the batteries that power electric vehicles, but soaring lithium demand is expected to exhaust land-based reserves by 2080. KAUST researchers have now developed an economically viable system that can extract high-purity lithium from seawater. The oceans contain about ...

Understanding aromaticity in catalysis to unlock new opportunities

"Our discovery is not about identifying a new or better catalyst for a known reaction, but about opening a new field for unlimited new opportunities in the future"

05-May-2021

Aromaticity, a concept usually used to explain the striking stability and unusual reactivity of certain carbon-based molecules, could inspire the design of new catalysts with novel uses, KAUST researchers have shown. Chemists first came upon the anomalous behavior of aromatic molecules in the ...

A cool chemical separation technology

A diverse category of porous materials can separate and purify key industrial chemicals at low temperatures

11-Mar-2021

Gas and liquid separation processes in the chemical industry could be made more efficient and environmentally friendly by using substances known as intrinsically porous materials (IPMs). KAUST researchers review the prospects for IPMs in the journal Accounts of Chemical Research. Niveen Khashab ...
