Catalyst that makes hydrogen gas breaks speed record

Thursday, August 11, 2011 - 16:30 in Physics & Chemistry

Looking to nature for their muse, researchers have used a common protein to guide the design of a material that can make energy-storing hydrogen gas. The synthetic material works 10 times faster than the original protein found in water-dwelling microbes, the researchers clocking in at 100,000 molecules of hydrogen gas every second.
