New Alloy that Attracts Hydrogen out of Water – leaving Oxygen

When powered with Direct Current (DC) electricity, this allow will attract Hydrogen atoms; this will work well in the air/atmosphere, but forms an explosive mixture of air that is not safe.

When applied to water molecules, H2O, this alloy will provide the power to overcome the molecular bonding between the Hydrogen atoms and the Oxygen atom causing the release of both elements as gases. The DC-powered alloy is stronger in attraction than the molecular bonds with the Oxygen.

This is an easy to do, very cost effective method of breaking water into its component parts of Hydrogen and Oxygen.

It will work effectively with salt water as well, leaving sea salt as a residue.

This technology is not being brought forth as a power source for engines, but an effective method to transform water into an atmosphere on the Moon, Mars and other planetary bodies that have significant levels of stored water.

    Could this technology, if applicable in on other planets, be applied to deep sea submarines, thereby reducing the need for nuclear reactors?

      See my page on replacing nuclear rods. But, yes, pulling the hydrogen out of water
      allows the burning of that same hydrogen with the oxygen that was freed; same principle
      as using water to run your car. The Pure Sodium approach is much more efficient for rapid
      development of steam.

        Actually, I was referring to extra oxygen for submarines, not only so they would not need to resurface in order to restore their air supply, but also so they could use gasoline or diesel instead of plutonium.

        • Merln says:

          Yes, this would work, but you’d get a lot of smoke/carbon particles as well. This
          would not be very efficient as they would have to refuel much more often. Better
          to use the Sodium-Vanadium heat source (see Replace Nuclear Rods)

        Actually, I was referring to supply oxygen for the sake of the crew and enabling them to use cheap, practical fuel, such as gasoline or diesel, all without having to surface.
