Taking alcohol from the nanobar The cover picture shows the use of nickel and cerium nano-oxyhydride catalysts in hydrogen production from ethanol in the presence of water and oxygen. In their Full Paper on p. 2207 ff., L. Jalowiecki-Duhamel et al. describe the characterization and catalytic properties of the nano-compounds. Hydrogen production (45 mol %) and total conversion of ethanol remain almost constant over at least 75 h time-on-stream with only a small energy input (reaction in oven at 60 °C), thanks to the presence of hydride species stored in the solid.
