Hydrogen gas is a popular green fuel which produces water upon burning. What’s even better is that hydrogen can be made sustainably from water in a process called water electrolysis. Unfortunately, the efficiency process is currently limited, such that large amounts of electricity are required. To resolve this limitation many different catalysts have been prepared. However, current catalysts typically rely on expensive metals that are not sustainable in the long run. In this publication, we aim to get around this issue by employing manganese as an economical alternative.
