Scientists Discover How to Split Hydrogen and Oxygen in Water

According to a latest report, scientists have recently come-up with a new technique and have discovered that with the help of a catalyst, it is possible to separate hydrogen and oxygen from water.

The scientists from the University of Houston (UH) have revealed this astounding fact in a news release on the 15th of December this year.

The scientists believe that the separation of the above mentioned elements is possible by using sun's rays and cobalt oxide nanoparticles.

Sources have revealed that with the help of this wonderful as well as useful finding the creation of clean renewable source of energy is possible.

It has been claimed by sources that the complete research findings about the same issue also show-up in the Nature Nanotechnology, which is an online article entitled as 'Efficient solar water-splitting using a nanocrystalline CoO photocatalyst.'

According to Jiming Bao, who is the lead author of the paper and an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UH, this present investigation has produced a new photocatalyst and established the vitality of nanotechnology in manufacturing a material's property.

According to sources, this project has come up due to the expertise of researchers from UH, Sam Houston State University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Texas State University, Carl Zeiss Microscopy LLC, and Sichuan University.
