Green Hy­dro­gen: can wa­ter fuel the fu­ture? Ying Pan

Thursday | April 25th, 2024 | 16:15-17:45  | Lecture Hall L1



Hydrogen is the simplest element known, the most abundant element in the universe. When it is in the form of hydrogen gas, it is an ideal fuel. However, hydrogen isn't found in natural deposits like coal or natural gas, so it must be made from molecules that contain hydrogen. Luckily water contains hydrogen and we can use water to produce hydrogen gas. However, what is the necessity of hydrogen, and what methods can we employ to generate it from water? Let’s find out together.


Personal Description:

Dr. Ying Pan is now a postdoctoral researcher sponsored by the Postdoc-Stipendium UPB for Young Female Scientists. She is working in the group of Jun. Prof. M.
