Salt water flowing over thin layers of rust generates electricity

It's not unusual to find rust around salt water, but now the pairing might actually be useful. Researchers at Caltech and Northwestern University have found that electricity can be produced when salt water flows over the top of thin films of rust. The process was previously seen in – what else – graphene, but rust is far easier to scale up.

Salt water is a common ingredient in batteries, usually as an electrolyte. It shows up in simple salt-water-powered lamps, huge redox flow batteries, and even in an experimental osmotic power generation plant.

But this new system works on a different principle to all of those examples. Rather than chemical reactions, the rust generates electricity using the electrokinetic effect, or the energy of the water's movement as it flows past. Basically, it works because the ions in the salt water attract the electrons in the iron under the layer of rust. As the salt water and its ions flow, that attraction drags the iron electrons and produces an electric current...

User Friendly

For your website to be successful, it should not only look good but also provide a seamless user experience for visitors. This is why good usability is important. It will set your website apart from your competition and provide a good visitor experience.

Responsive Design

A responsive website is one that responds (or changes) based on the needs of the users and the device (mobile device in this example) that they're viewing it on. Text and images change from a multi-column layout, to a single column display.

Search Engine Friendly

Search engines are limited in how they crawl the web and interpret content. A webpage doesn't always look the same to you and me as it looks to a search engine. Web pages need to be structured for both search engines and human visitors alike.
