original image

Attractive hydrogen production? The amorphous Fe nanoparticles prepared following a simple but very efficient method possess high catalytic activity (see picture) for the generation of hydrogen from an aqueous solution of ammonia borane, even in air, and can readily be recycled with no obvious loss of catalytic activity.
