In a new experiment, British scientists reported 60% efficiency in the process to produce hydrogen from water.

British scientists claim to have figured out the most efficient way for extracting hydrogen from water using solar energy. The scientists reported 60% efficiency in this experiment in which hydrogen was produced from water by having light photons strike a gold electrode which was coated with nanoclusters of indium phosphide.

This could be a significant breakthrough as no other process has reached such a high efficiency, potentially paving the way to new technologies for hydrogen fuel cells.
