Hydrogen

NUS chemical scientists have been successful in developing a carbon-conjugated covalent organic framework. This framework will allow the production of hydrogen gas from water. Visible light drives the catalytic process. Hydrogen gas is increasingly becoming a key storage medium for the applications of sustainable energy. Scientists are now showing great interest in the process of producing hydrogen gas from decomposed water using sunlight. However, this conversion of hydrogen gas from

Heart Failure

Currently, there is no drug available for treating heart attacks or preventing heart failure. However, that may change with the latest discovery by the researchers at the University of Guelph. The pioneering research led by Prof. Tami Martino claim that they have found a potential drug to prevent heart failure. Prof. Martino, who works at the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Guelph, believes that this new drug

Hydrogen Energy

Hydrogen gas production is a significant advancement of science for various reasons. Currently, hydrogen electrolysis makes way for only about 5% of the hydrogen in use. Furthermore, this hydrogen production remains confined to high-end applications producing oxygen for international space stations. This is largely due to the high-costs. Conversely, possibilities of hydrogen energy can be a significant leap in renewable energy. Additionally, hydrogen is widespread in commercial applications as well.

Energy from Vacuum

Researchers at TU Vienna, IIT Kharagpur, and the Universite libre de Bruxelles have published a study stating that energy can be borrowed from the vacuum. The study points out the significance of negative energy in quantum physics. It also says that it can be taken on lease from vacuum. However, like any other bank, the energy loan has to be repaid with interest. The scientists have named this interest as
