Easy aluminum nanoparticles for rapid, efficient hydrogen generation from water

“We don’t need any energy input, and it bubbles hydrogen like crazy. I’ve never seen anything like it”


Aluminum is a highly reactive metal that can strip oxygen from water molecules to generate hydrogen gas. Its widespread use in products that get wet poses no danger because aluminum instantly reacts with air to acquire a coating of aluminum oxide, which blocks further reactions. For years, ...


New catalyst for hydrogen production is a step toward clean fuel


A nanostructured composite material developed at UC Santa Cruz has shown impressive performance as a catalyst for the electrochemical splitting of water to produce hydrogen. An efficient, low-cost catalyst is essential for realizing the promise of hydrogen as a clean, environmentally friendly ...


Novel capping strategy improves stability of perovskite nanocrystals


Perovskite materials have shown great promise for use in next-generation solar cells, light-emitting devices (LEDs), sensors, and other applications, but their instability remains a critical limitation. Researchers at UC Santa Cruz attacked this problem by focusing on perovskite nanocrystals, in ...


Hollow gold nanospheres show promise for biomedical and other applications


A new metal nanostructure developed by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz, has already shown promise in cancer therapy studies and could be used for chemical and biological sensors and other applications as well. The hollow gold nanospheres developed in the laboratory of Jin ...


Oxford Nanopore Technologies Announces License Agreement with University of California, Santa Cruz


Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd announced the completion of an exclusive license agreement to develop nanopore science developed at the University of California, Santa Cruz (“UCSC”), in the laboratories of Professors David Deamer and Mark Akeson. Oxford Nanopore will also fund research in the ...
