Carbon dioxide gas released from the interior of the Earth through volcanic eruptions, geological rocks, and the geothermal system contributes to the global carbon cycle that affects the short and long-term climate of the Earth. The Himalayan region sleeps about 600 hot water beds with varying temperatures and chemical conditions. Their role in regional and global climate change and the process of gas emissions resulting from the movement of geological rocks needs to be considered when assessing global warming. Geological springs spread over an area of about 10,000 sq km in the Garhwal region of the Himalayas show the extraction of water rich in carbon dioxide (CO2). An autonomous institute under the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India It was traced by the Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology. This institute has the expertise to test the gas emitted from these springs. Estimated carbon dioxide emissions (the separation of gases from liquids, especially water or aqueous solutions) in the atmosphere is about 7.2×106 Mol/yr.
Hydrogen is introduced as the next generation of low-carbon fuel, to gradually eliminate the use of fossil fuels and to combat climate change. The future of the use of hydrogen as a fuel lies in the design of efficient electro-catalysts, which can facilitate electrochemical splitting of water for hydrogen production. The effectiveness of an electrocatalyst for hydrogen (H2) growth reaction (HER) depends largely on its durability (robustness), its ability to reduce the excess of the electrochemical reaction, and the cost (production) of the synthesis. Commercially used platinum (Pt) / carbon (C) catalysts are efficient, But are expensive and when used over a long time cause metal ion or electrocatalyst corrosion. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and coordination polymers (COPs) are envisaged as next-generation catalysts, as they achieve higher surface area, lower charge resistance, and higher active spaces to increase water splitting efficiency. Can be prepared in various forms. Scientists are trying to find a new way of MOF based catalysts to prevent electrocatalytic corrosion. Researchers at the Center for Nanotechnology and Soft Materials Sciences (CENS), an autonomous institute under the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India, have synthesized a new COP that contains palladium Pd (II) ions, which are responsible for H-absorption. Serve as a source for And benzene tetramine (BTA) is capable of better charge transfer. The two combine to form a two-dimensional (2D) sheet of Pd (BTA) through H-bond reactions. The research has been published in the journal “ACS Applied Energy Materials”.
