Photochemical Water Splitting: Materials and Applications

Neelu Chouhan, Ru-Shi Liu, Jiujun Zhang
January 25, 2017

Cleavage of water to its constituents (i.e., hydrogen and oxygen) for production of hydrogen energy at an industrial scale is one of the "holy grails" of materials science. That can be done by utilizing the renewable energy resource i.e. sunlight and photocatalytic material. The sunlight and water...

Solar Fuel Generation

Yatendra S. Chaudhary
January 17, 2017

As the search for renewable sources of energy grows more urgent, more and more attention is focusing on the blueprint offered by biological photosynthesis for translating the energy of our Sun into energy rich molecules like H2 and carbohydrates, commonly known as "solar fuels." These solar fuels...

Vitamin B12: Advances and Insights

Rima Obeid
January 11, 2017

Cobalamin (vitamin B12) was discovered in the first half of the 20th century. Vast amount of information on the role of the vitamins in human health and disease became available. Cobalamin science was, however, based on theoretical concepts that have been accepted without further proof of facts and...
