–The ever-rising needs for energy to meet the global energy demands require the excessive burning of coal and fossil fuels. The burning emits poisonous gases to the environment making it unhealthy for the earth’s inhabitants. Water could be a source for generating fuels as an alternative to coal energy. Breaking of water generates hydrogen and oxygen. Both hydrogen and oxygen can be used as fuels that are clean and green.
2. My expertise is to synthesize nanomaterials by wet chemical method. These nanomaterials have the ability to absorb sunlight and use sunlight energy to break down water into hydrogen and oxygen. These hydrogen and oxygen are stored and can be used as fuels.
