Scientists work on inexpensive catalyst to produce hydrogen

Photo courtesy of Gizmag.com“…. [H]ydrogen may yet make good on its promise thanks to a group of scientists at the University of Cambridge. They found that cobalt can function as an efficient catalyst at room temperature in pH neutral water surrounded by oxygen. Compared to platinum, cobalt is relatively abundant and therefore inexpensive…¬†However, cobalt is not a magic bullet. ‘Many hurdles such as the rather poor stability of the catalyst remain to be addressed,'” says a lead scientist.
