Economizing on iridium

The nobel metal iridium is ideally suited for hydrogen production via electrolysis – and it is extremely expensive. But now a new kind of electrode helps you save real money. It is made of highly porous material and does an excellent job with just a hint of iridium.

The future of emerging Hybrid 2D Materials

Hybrid 2D materials offer opportunities from quantum engineering to energy applications. The Munich workshop gave profound insight into the cutting-edge research and fostered collaborations between scientists from Cambridge and LMU.
