ammonia electrolyzer
I found this interesting article:
http://webche.ent.ohiou.edu/eerl/ammonia...index.html

They state that you can get the following reactions:

2NH3 + 6OH- -------> N2 + 6H2O + 6e-

at the cathode a solution of KOH is supplied and water is reduced in alkaline medium according to

2H2O + 2e- -------> H2 + 6OH-

therefore the overall reaction is given by

2NH3 -------> N2 + 3H2

the theoretical voltage for the production of hydrogen at 25C through electrolysis of ammonia in alkaline media is 0.058 V with an energy consumption of 1.55 W-h per gram of H2 produced. KOH is the electrolyte for the system and water acts as the solvent, that is, neither KOH nor water are consumables during the operation of the cell.


Isn't this the perfect hydrogen generator to increase the speed of the flame front with no extra O2 generated?

What would be the side effects? More corrosion of the plates?

On the webseite:
Represents a solution to hydrogen storage, production and transportation. Provides alternatives/renewal sources of hydrogen and could be used as a remediation process to preserve the water and air environments.

It is for storage and tansportation solution. It doesn't look like an hydrogen generator for me in the first read.

Article about electrolysis:
http://webche.ent.ohiou.edu/eerl/documen...mmonia.pdf

For sure it is more risky to handle.
