Unique Approach For Splitting Water Into Hydrogen And Oxygenby Staff WritersRehovot, Israel (SPX) Apr 07, 2009The design of efficient systems for splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen, driven by sunlight is among the most important challenges facing science today, underpinning the long term potential of hydrogen as a clean, sustainable fuel.
But man-made systems that exist today are very inefficient and often require additional use of sacrificial chemical agents. In this context, it is important to establish new mechanisms by which water splitting can take place.
