Producing hydrogen using nanomaterials

Low-carbon hydrogen is one of the avenues being explored as a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. Several techniques are being explored for producing hydrogen. One of these is photocatalysis, which involves using light to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The aim of the C3PO project, funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR), is to study confinement and photocatalysis in polarised nanotubes, in order to determine whether they could produce hydrogen.
