Hydrogen is being traded as the energy carrier of the future. To date, existing methodologies have not been able to elucidate how exactly the electrochemical process of water splitting takes place at the molecular scale on a catalyst surface. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz have now developed a new method to investigate such processes 'live' on the nanometer scale.
