Micromotors for Energy Generation

Self-propelled microparticles boost hydrogen release from liquid storage media.
Hydrogen is considered to be the energy source of the future: the first vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells are already on the market. However, the problem of hydrogen storage has not been solved in a satisfactory way. American scientists have now developed catalytically active micromotors that significantly increase the release of hydrogen from liquid storage media. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, they introduce their new concept with a model vehicle powered by a hydrogen–oxygen fuel cell.
