Are Tiny Hydrogen Traps in the Works?

Scientists at Boston College have successfully grown tiny wire nets from silicon and titanium disilicide, a semiconductor. These nano-nets may lead to advances in micro-electronics and have the ability to facilitate the splitting of water into oxygen and hydrogen. Interestingly, the hydrogen remains trapped in the nano-netting, leading researchers to conclude that larger nano-nets may double as water-splitters and hydrogen fuel storage cells. These fascinating developments may eventually lead to new tools we can put to good use in the building / facilities industry.
