Low Cost and Efficient Way to Generate Hydrogen from Water

Current Context: Researchers at the Centre for Nano and Soft Matter Sciences (CeNS) has discovered a catalyst called Molybdenum Dioxide which has proven to be low Cost and efficient way to generate hydrogen from water.
Low Cost and Efficient Way to Generate Hydrogen from Water
  • The Molybdenum Dioxide (MoO2) nanomaterials are annealed in hydrogen atmosphere and possess the ability to act as an efficient catalyst.
  • With the help of Molybdenum Dioxide (MoO2), hydrogen can be generated from water and produces water on energy generation without any carbon footprint.
  • The discovery of Molybdenum Dioxide (MoO2) has led to the replacement of currently employed catalyst Pt which is very expensive and is limited in the resource.
  • About 80% efficient conversion of electrical energy into hydrogen has been achieved using this catalyst.

Question: 

Q.1 Which organisation has developed Molybdenum Dioxide (MoO2) to generate hydrogen from water at low cost and efficient way?
a. CSIR
b. IIT-Delhi
c. ICT Mumbai
d. CeNS
