Cheaper hydrogen catalyst, multiple uses of carbon

* Create the right molecule containing molybdenum and you have a very inexpensive catalyst for getting hydrogen out of water. See A molecular molybdenum-oxo catalyst for generating hydrogen from water, Nature, April 29, 2010.

* Make thin-films of the right form of carbon and you can build ultracapacitors into electronic devices. See Monolithic Carbide-Derived Carbon Films for Micro-Supercapacitors, Science, April 23, 2010.

* Form tiny wires from carbon nanotubes and you can make self-powering biomedical devices. See Engineering hybrid nanotube wires for high-power biofuel cells, Nature Communications, published online April 12, 2010.

* Find a way to suspend tiny carbon sheets in a liquid and you have an ingredient for inexpensive solar cells. See Large, Solution-Processable Graphene Quantum Dots as Light Absorbers for Photovoltaics, Nano Letters, published online April 8, 2010.
