CINE researchers present a promising material for large-scale green hydrogen generation. Developed with abundant, non-toxic raw materials and low-cost, scalable processes, the material performed very well as the cathode of a photoelectrochemical cell. The article was featured on the front cover of the journal.



This article by CINE researchers addresses the development of solid-state electrochemical reactors to produce hydrocarbons through methane conversion. The authors point out ways for this technology to continue evolving and thus play an important role in reducing carbon emissions in the chemical industry.



A study carried out by members of CINE’s Computational Science division contributes to the development of copper catalysts for the conversion of carbon dioxide into products of industrial value through electrochemical reactions. The work shows strategies that can make those catalysts more selective and more active.



CINE researchers used a fuel cell with polymeric electrolyte and copper-carbon electrocatalyst to convert carbon dioxide into higher value-added products. The authors were able to map the formation of products at different potential values.



A CINE team investigated aspects of the preparation of molybdenum sulfide electrocatalysts to make them more economical and efficient in the generation of hydrogen by water splitting. The article is part of a focus issue dedicated to Women in Electrochemistry.



This review paper by CINE members and collaborators evaluates the implementation of a battery tracking platform based on blockchain technology. This tool, which is being developed by the authors of the review, would bring more safety to the production, use, reuse, recycling and disposal of batteries – devices that are increasingly in demand due to the expansion of electric vehicles.

The workshop of the Computational Materials Science and Chemistry (CMSC) division took place online from February 14th to 18th with an audience of 60 to 70 people, including CINE members and other researchers from Brazil and abroad. The event brought scientific discussion, new collaborations and, for the younger ones, an experience of presenting their contributions in English.



In the final episode of the CINE podcast, leaders from the Center reflect on the role of governments, companies and consumers in the shift to a more sustainable world. Listen here.
