Energy-efficient electrolytic hydrogen production assisted by coupling urea oxidation with a pH-gradient concentration cell

Author affiliations

Abstract

An unprecedented asymmetric-electrolyte electrolyzer is proposed using an acidic cathode for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and an alkaline anode for the urea oxidation reaction (UOR), which significantly decreases the electrical energy required for electrolytic hydrogen production.
