Synthetic nickel electrocatalyst for hydrogen production

Check out this recent Science paper on ‘A Synthetic Nickel Electrocatalyst with a Turnover Frequency Above 100,000 sāˆ’1 for H2 Production’.

Morris Bullock, Daniel Du Bois and colleagues from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in the USA make a nickel catalyst which produces hydrogen at 10 times the rate of the enzyme hydrogenase, and much faster than commercially available catalysts.
