The generation of hydrogen or the conversion of energy from molecular hydrogen holds great potential for future energy conversion systems such as those already used in hydrogen-powered cars. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have taken a close look at the conversion processes that occur at molecular length scales, and in so doing have gained an essential insight into chemical reactions at electrodes. more
