Graphene's proton permeability: A switch for future energy technologies
This discovery could lead to the development of more efficient hydrogen fuel cells and solar water-splitting devices
21-Nov-2023 - Researchers from theNational Graphene Instituteat the University of Manchester have discovered a way to use light to accelerate proton transport throughgraphene, which could revolutionise the way we generate hydrogen. Proton transport is a key step in many renewable energy technologies, such ...
Graphene discovery could help generate hydrogen cheaply and sustainably
Microscopic insights into electrochemical interfaces
29-Aug-2023 - Researchers from The University of Warwick and the University of Manchester have finally solved the long-standing puzzle of why graphene is so much more permeable to protons than expected by theory. A decade ago, scientists at The University of Manchester demonstrated that graphene is permeable ...
Fluorographene: The World’s Thinnest Insulator
09-Nov-2010 - The remarkable properties of graphene and Teflon have been combined in a new material by the winners of this year’s Nobel Prize for Physics. Kostya Novoselov and Andre Geim, working at the University of Manchester, UK, first isolated graphene in 2004. It was a tricky task, as one would expect if ...
