Funny, I was just wondering yesterday why my dentist was suddenly anxious to use resin instead of palladium, whereas for years the anxiety has been the other way around (Palladium lasts longer). Fun fact #palladium is only used in Japan. #japan #dentistry https://t.co/L0cC2G5afJ

Japan, the world’s third-largest economy is switching to #hydrogen to decarbonise. As demand for #hydrogen technology grows so too does the demand for 'green metals' like #platinum, #palladium, #nickel.

🌱 In Japan, some people wash their clothes using magnesium (Mg) pellets.
🌱 Here's how it works: When Mg reacts with water in your washing machine, it generates hydrogen gas, H₂, and magnesium hydroxide, Mg(OH)₂.
Mg²⁺ + 2H₂O → H₂ + Mg(OH)₂
Mg(OH)₂ ⇌ Mg²⁺ + 2OH- pic.twitter.com/56lPWNoJw7
