A researcher at the University of Central Florida has created a new hybrid nanomaterial that harnesses solar energy, and uses it to generate hydrogen from seawater more cheaply and efficiently than current materials. The cost of electricity associated with older models is high, so a hybrid alternative is likely to become more popular. The breakthrough could lead to a new source of the clean-burning fuel, easing the demand for fossil fuels and boosting the economy of Florida, where there are copious amounts of sunshine and seawater. Researcher Yang Yang’s discovery was made using a photocatalyst, which is a material that…
