Mineral-Based Catalyst Efficiently Splits Water into Oxygen and Hydrogen Ions at Neutral pH

Mineral-Based Catalyst Efficiently Splits Water into Oxygen and Hydrogen Ions at Neutral pH

Water splitting is one of the critical reactions that sustain life on earth, and could be a key to the creation of future fuels. It is a key in the process of photosynthesis, through which plants produce glucose and oxygen from water and carbon dioxide, using sunlight as energy. However, there are still significant mysteries about the process. [More]
