Hydrogen gas, generated by splitting water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen atoms, is one of the cleanest sources of energy, and could one day be used as an alternative to fossil fuels. One hurdle preventing hydrogen from becoming more widespread as a fuel source is the difficulty in generating the hydrogen in an eco-friendly manner. Currently, the energy for splitting the water molecules comes from electricity, much of which is generated through the use of fossil fuels. Now, researchers at Australia’s RMIT University have developed a solar paint that can absorb water vapor directly from the air and split it to generate hydrogen.
