Extracting hydrogen using water electrolysis, that is separating water into oxygen and hydrogen using electric current, could contribute to making energy generated from renewable sources more efficient and cheaper to store in future. This method is still too costly at the moment. An interdisciplinar...

Aging and a low life expectancy are caused, at least partly, by oxidative stress. A team of researchers led by Prof. Dr. Ivana Ivanović-Burmazović of the Chair of Bioinorganic Chemistry at FAU, together with researchers from the USA, have discovered that zinc can activate an organic molecule, helpin...

The future perspective of chemistry is ‘electrifying’: With increasing availability of cheap electrical energy from renewables it will soon become possible to drive many chemical processes by electrical power. In this way, chemical products and fuels can be produced via sustainable routes, replacing...

Apart from MgH2, which is widely investigated for its hydrogen storage properties, alkaline earth metal hydrides are generally of no interest. The salt CaH2 reacts vigorously with water but is in contrast to other metal hydrides like LiAlH4 fully inert towards most organics. This is primarily due to...
