Method for hydrogen production by photo-thermal catalysis

CSIC has developed a new method for hydrogen production through methanol reforming using a photo-thermo-catalyst, which combines thermal and light energy for the activation. The method allows to moderate the operating conditions (temperature and pressure), leading to energy savings and an improvement in the stability of the catalyst.

Industrial partners from the energetic industry interested in using [read more]

CSIC researchers obtain a nanomaterial that eliminates coronavirus and is applicable in masks and fabrics

It is based on copper nanoparticles that block the functional proteins of SARS-CoV-2, especially the ‘spike’ protein, which allows the virus to infect cells.

A team of researchers from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) has developed a new nanomaterial, consisting of copper nanoparticles, which inhibits the proteins of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes covid-19, and [read more]
