A new way to split water (for chemistry buffs)
I like to search cutting edge technology and thought that this was interesting enough to pass on and share with you all. An interesting article about nano aluminum used as a catalyst for splitting water with no power or heat. And the aluminum hydroxide created is supposedly easily recovered. It's in it's infancy right now so we'll see exactly how big this discovery really is. Thanks and enjoy.

Wonder if it'll produce more H2 than when you put wads of aluminum foil in a NaOH solution. They allude to "nano" conditions. Hope they're not talking about a nano generator.

Interesting article.

Needs specially shaped aluminium??
Is this a similar mechanism to the reaction with Al and NaOH. Chemical file? .
Also wondered if the scientists had heard of NaOH.

Suddenly had this weird mental image of 20 million Chinese sitting with very small files and piles of aluminium . . . . .

Well that explains why DOC was stuffing al. cans into the de lorien for fuel

I wonder how much more efficient it is than NaOH or underwater arc.
OK it works at ambient temps and with plain water but the cost of nanosizing the aluminium and protecting it from moisture during storage and transport must be considerable. But still an interesting way of utilizing the "Aluminium Battery"

The same universities are now using nano aluminum powder and ice for rocket fuel.

Aluminum is the best medium to transfer the heat and at the same time to reduce the temperature of the thing which is used in the machinery. So in this way aluminum can help in engine to cool the water.

RE: A new way to split water (for chemistry buffs)
efficient systems for splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen, driven by sunlight is among the most important challenges facing science today, underpinning the long term potential of hydrogen as a clean, sustainable fuel. But man-made systems that exist today are very inefficient and often require additional use of sacrificial chemical agents. In this context, it is important to establish new mechanisms by which water splitting can take place.
