Cobalt ‘thin film’ splits water in 2

April 30th, 2015

Cobalt ‘thin film’ splits water in 2 A Rice lab produces a thin-film catalyst for both hydrogen and oxygen generation. The material could replace expensive metals like platinum in water-electrolysis devices that produce hydrogen and oxygen for fuel cells. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor of computer science and of […]

Water makes wires even more nano

April 13th, 2015

Water makes wires even more nano Rice University researchers create sub-10-nanometer wires from a variety of materials by using water as a mask in a simple etching process. The process is promising for microelectronics manufacturers who seek to shrink the circuits in their devices. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor […]
