Imagine using five liters of seawater per day to power an average-sized home or an electric car for a whole day? The research team at UOW’s Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) have developed a light-assisted catalyst that requires less energy input to activate water oxidation, which is the first step in splitting water to produce hydrogen fuel.

According to Science Alert Blog, The research team at UOW’s Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) already came up of a way to split the hydrogen from sea water. The research team, led by Dr Jun Chen and Professor Gerry Swiegers, have produced an artificial chlorophyll on a conductive plastic film that acts as a catalyst to begin splitting water.

If they are to produce something that can make the process of splitting water more, efficient, more faster and more effective we could find ourselves a…
