Science generally gets reported as if it happens in big leaps, but in reality most of the time science progresses in small but satisfying steps. One example of this is another step in a story I have followed for several years from Professor David Britt’s lab in the UC Davis Department of Chemistry, published April 9 in the journal Nature Chemistry.
David Britt’s laboratory at the UC Davis Department of Chemistry uses advance techniques to study how enzymes that can produce hydrogen are assembled.

A simple method for manufacturing extremely low-density palladium nanofoams could help advance hydrogen storage technologies, reports a new study from the University of California, Davis.
UC Davis physicists Dustin Gilbert, Kai Liu and colleagues have come up with a new method to make a nanofoam of palladium. The foamy metal could be used to store hydrogen in vehicles or for other purposes. (Image credit: Dustin Gilbert and Kai Liu, UC Davis)
