Borophene units split water
A molybdenum-boron material functions as a highly active catalyst for the hydrogen evolution reaction, one of the key steps in liberating hydrogen from water (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2017, DOI: 10.1021/jacs.7b06337). The promise of a practically limitless supply of clean-burning hydrogen fuel from water spurs scientists to find catalysts that split water into hydrogen and oxygen. Platinum works well, but it’s expensive. . . .
