Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl


The Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS) opened in June 2013 and is part of Aarhus University’s focus on research and talent development. The ambition is to strengthen the university’s position as one of the most attractive places in Europe for early career researchers. AIAS is an independent institute at Aarhus University and will eventually host approximately thirty-five fellows at a time.

On the left, a scanning tunneling microscope image captures the bright shape of the molybdenum sulfidenanocluster on a graphite surface. The grey spots are carbon atoms. Together the moly sulfide and graphite make the electrode. The diagram on the right shows how two positive hydrogen ions gain electrons through a chemical reaction at the moly sulfide nanocluster to form pure molecular hydrogen.

Danish researcher develops promising catalyst to produce hydrogen

Catalysts made of molybdenum sulfides have been used for the desulphurisation of oil since World War II. Now, Jakob Kibsgaard, however, has revealed promising results to produce hydrogen from water by means of nanoparticles of Mo3S13 in a collaboration between the universities in Aarhus and Stanford. What is so smart about Mo3S13 is that it can be…
