IIT Jodhpur fabricates a highly sensitive hydrogen sensor

A research team from IIT Jodhpur and IIT Hyderabad have together fabricated a sensor that can detect hydrogen gas even when present at extremely low concentration of 1 ppm. The sensitivity is 30% at 1 ppm hydrogen concentration and 74% at 100 ppm concentration. A sensor that can detect hydrogen gas even when present at … Continue reading IIT Jodhpur fabricates a highly sensitive hydrogen sensor

IISER Kolkata: Paper-based electrodes show superior water-splitting efficiency

Researchers at IISER Kolkata have used a paper coated with nickel nanoparticles and model catalysts to split water to produce hydrogen gas. The flexible electrodes recorded 98% water-splitting efficiency and maintained robustness and durability even after more than 10 continuous days of operation. Using paper coated with nickel nanoparticles and model catalysts as electrodes, researchers … Continue reading IISER Kolkata: Paper-based electrodes show superior water-splitting efficiency

Antarctic ice reveals that fossil fuel extraction leaks more methane than thought

Hinrich Schaefer, National Institute of Water and AtmosphericThe fossil fuel industry is a larger contributor to atmospheric methane levels than previously thought, according to our research which shows that natural seepage of this potent greenhouse gas from oil and gas reservoirs is more modest than had been assumed. In our research, published in Nature on … Continue reading Antarctic ice reveals that fossil fuel extraction leaks more methane than thought
