Hydrogen made using sunlight a step closer

By ZHANG ZHIHAO | China Daily | Updated: 2022-10-13 00:00

Chinese scientists have clearly mapped the basic mechanism behind turning water into hydrogen gas using sunlight and catalysts, paving the way for the green production of hydrogen on an industrial scale, according to a study published in the journal Nature on Wednesday.

Hydrogen is widely regarded as a clean and renewable fuel crucial for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change. However, producing hydrogen on an industrial scale often requires natural gas, a non-renewable fossil fuel.

For decades, scientists have been trying to find a clean and easy way to produce hydrogen, preferably using water, which contains two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.
