Scientists Are Harnessing Crystals To Create Clean Energy Solution

For years, scientists have been striving to find an effective method of splitting water for the purpose of mining the electron rich hydrogen to use for clean energy. Water splitting is where h2o undergoes an artificial photosynthesis which splits the water molecules into their components hydrogen and oxygen. The solar-energy-filled hydrogen extracted from this process can then be used as an efficient energy source. The only complication that this method poses is that the act of splitting water is a very strenuous task that quickly destroys many of the materials tested.
