Currently, hydrogen production is based on the reforming process, leading to the emission of pollutants; therefore, a substitute production method is imminently required. Water electrolysis is an ideal alternative for large-scale hydrogen production, as it does not produce any carbon-based pollutant byproducts. The production of green hydrogen from...

Plant extracts offer the possibility of reduce metallic salt ions to solid nanoparticles that can be used as antibacterial and anticancer agents.Among thousands of varieties, aloe vera has been used for centuries for its properties, allowing the generation of environmetally-safe nanomaterials. Aloe vera plant leaves are physically purified to obtain the extracts that are collected and use for the reduction of metallic salt ions in aqueous solution. Using a extremely quick reaction and an additional (and not always needed) step of hydrothermal reaction inside a teflon-lined reactor at mild temperature, nanoparticles with different morphologies are easily prepared. An outstanding synergy between the properties of natural compounds present in aloe vera extracts and the antibacterial properties of the nanoparticles is achieved. Plant extracts allow the biocompatibility of the system, enabling nanoparticles to be used for both antibacterial and in vitro analysis with human cells, with low cytotoxicity.
