Hello, I generated hydrogen simply by applying a DC current to 2 tubes filled with water , the ( - ) tube started bubling and filled up with a gas, i suppose that it should be hydrogen, i sucked the gas with a syringe and tried to burn this gas with a lighter by squeezing the syringe directly over the lighter's flame but the gas wouldn't burn, instead i heard micro pop's , like micro explosions.. Isn't hydrogen flamable ??

I want to store hydrogen gas(not browns gas) in some kind of pressure container. Since the propane tank is not a good idea from your forum, I was thinking about using a truck tire that could be pressurized to 120 psi. What are the hazards in this process. I would suck out the air from the tube tire with a vacuum pump and then generate hydrogen gas, compress it into the tire. Will it work or will it become unstable and blow up?.

I am vaporizing saltwater and beaming focused radio waves to free hydrogen atoms that are collected by a small "cyclone" style vacuum cleaner and fed into a fuel cell that produces energy to my Vanguard Citicar (1975 electric car), the wave producer, the vacuum, and the battery bank. It fricking works!

Theoretically you can, but did anyone really do this with success ? Anyone knows of a link that has all the details for such a project ? I need to know how big the hydrogen generator should be and how to safely connect the hydrogen supply to the motor, how to mix the hydrogen with oxygen and what ratio, is it better to mix with pure oxygen or just normal air or maybe hydroxy just works fine ?! How to prevent firebacks... too many little details to be discussed.. so anyone has any usefull info just throw it at us please to try to make a really efficient 100% hydrogen powered car.

What is the most practical and cost efficient way to make a 10m3 gas bag for the storage of hydrogen? I am planning to store pure Hydrogen (made from water electrolysis) in an outdoor area, a bit like the way biodigestor gas is stored in low cost, small scale installations. My concern is the high effusing nature of the gas through membrane material. My first thought was to use reinforced PVC like that used for truck tarpaulins but I can't find any info on effusing rates verses other materials. Ideally the gas would be able to remain in the bag for a maximum 2-3 weeks until needed. This is an experiment on the practical applications of locally produced hydrogen, so I hope to be able to follow up any advice by constructing the gas bag and reporting back with the project progress. Any thoughts and advice would be gratefully received! Thanks in advance, Nick

Hi, I need to create 96 volts and low variable amps... I don't know of any simple ways of doing this unless I spend lots of money.. So can I add some different dc power supplies to get to 96 volts dc? or is there another inexpensive way to make it happen? The purpose is for a large hydrogen generator, high volts, and low amps.. Thanks for your help... Bryan

Hello, I am working on a Hydrogen generation project. I am using a PWM (pulse width modulator) to control the Generator from going into thermal runaway. However, the current PWM's on the market dont offer temperature control. Only duty cycle control. So I need some help here. I need a way to control a potentiometer to increase or decrease resistance based upon a temperature range from 80 to 95 degrees. I dont want this to turn the unit off, only lower the duty cycle when the peak temp is reached. Then also, when the unit is cold on start up, it would release full amps into it until it reached it peak operating temp. The idea is to make a PWM control the generator via duty cycle (amperage draw) and temperature. Make it a "set it, and forget it" system. My thoughts are using two surface mount thermostatic switches. One for low limit the other for the high limit. Then a relay and another potentiaometer. Theory of operation: On initial start up, the generator is offered full amperage draw of 40 amps(100% duty cycle) until it reaches its operating temperature of 80 to 95 degrees. Once it reaches the peak of the operating temp the upper limit switch kicks open causing a relay to offer a differing resistance (80% duty cycle) that would effectively make the PWM still keep producing hydrogen, but cool down. When or if the lower limit of 80 degrees is reached the lower limit thermostat would close allowing again 100% duty cycle to the generator. Thus, this system would keep the generator operating at an optimal temperature at all times regardless of outside temperature, and conditions. Current PWM's require the user to manually get them set. If the outside temps are colder the system will work less effectively. If the outside temps are hotter the temps may cause thermal runaway. All operating conditions require the user to be constantly fiddling with, and keeping an eye on the amp draw, temps, and voltage. This means eyes not on the road while driving. Bad ju-ju. I'd like to make this device super simple to operate, and build. With off the shelf items, not custom IC's. Any ideas?

I have an electrode made of 304 SS that when hooked to a 12V automotive battery draws about 80A. That is WAY too much amps, and I want to boost the output voltage to 36 or more, and reduce the amps as low as possible. I plan to drive the flyback with a square wave generator. What do I need to know to wind my own coil: what core, size of wire for primary and secondary and how many turns of each? Thanks in advance. I've already found that an ignition coil will not work, unless you know of some way to adapt one so that it will.

Okay, here is the deal. Me and a friend where thinking about filling two weather balloons( http://www.ebay.com/itm/GIANT-Weather-Balloon-Meteorological-Military-8-Dia-/330626487344?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cfadfd430) with a lifting gas, sending it up with a camera and gps-cellphone. Now, we have everything else figured out but how to get hydrogen, as it is the lightest gas. Is there any way to produce those quantities of hydrogen within a 6-36 hours? I figure I'd ask here because there are quite a few hydrogen powered vehicles here.

I am wanting to make some sulphuric acid because it is on of the most useful acids around and i have ran into a problem. after you burn sulphur to create sulphur dioxide you then need a catalyst to form sulphur trioxide and then dissolve in water. which catalysts could be used and could you just let the sulphur dioxide dissolve in hydrogen peroxide (so2-----so3------h20--------h2so4 or so2 ------ h202---------h2so4).if this would work how could you get a large enough concentration of hydrogen peroxide?

Hi,Pennsylvania State University researchers last week announced that they have developed a method of producing hydrogen gas by combining electron-generating bacteria, acetic acid and less than .2 volt source in a microbial fuel cell. Info at this URL... http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5iXbROJgdF3_6BtG3TZFEs9hiw8CgI first heard about this last week on NPR's Talk of the Nation. Here is NPR link - http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=16343702&sc=emafThe researcher who led the project Bruce Logan, the director of the Hydrogen Energy Center there said last week on the show that this was actually a relatively simple process.He claims 90 percent efficiency. Also claimed is that the process produces 288 per cent more energy in hydrogen than the electrical energy that is added to the process.I would love to build one small scale and combine it with solar panels. Or maybe try to generate some hydrogen and try using it as a fuel supplement for my car using something like this - http://www.hydrogen-fuel.ca/ . Anyone willing to tackle this one?

I am thinking renewable fuel cell fuel here, but other then smell, are there any other draw backs to using this? I mean, I realize the salt content may or may not be a bit hard on metal parts etc. ..

Ok earlier I asked how I can build the needed 110 DC out of 110 AC.... I can't seem to get things going so I was wondering if someone was willing to help me? I will be glad to pay a reward or payment or tip?? for anyone willing to build this for me... I need it to plug into the house 110 AC then go through a dimmer switch then a diode bridge then a ?? resonator or filter? or ? then this would be placed into the hydrogen generator.. Of course I would not hold any animosity over any problems that may happen, I will simply have someone else do it... as I'm disabled and have problems with soldering.. so if you can please email me and let me know what you can do for me... or if that is to much to ask, can you please send me all the parts I need and very detailed instructions... hahaha OK? or.... ??? I will be glad to send money for your time and the parts.. please contact me at email@example.com

Wondering if any one have come across a video showing the steps or know how to do this and how to extract H2O2 form the solution to make hydrogen peroxide like discribed from wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_peroxide#Manufacture i know i just cut and pasted to make it easer the history barium peroxide with nitric acid. An improved version of this process used hydrochloric acid, followed by sulfuric acid to precipitate the barium sulfate byproduct. Sodium peroxide also makes H2O2 Na2O2 + 2 H2O → 2 NaOH + H2O2 those are hard to come by for DIY and thought maybe this would easier inorganic processes were used, employing the electrolysis of an aqueous solution of sulfuric acid or acidic ammonium bisulfate (NH4HSO4), followed by hydrolysis of the peroxodisulfate ((SO4)2)2− that is formed. peroxodisulfate commonly referred to as the persulfate ion hydrolysis is a chemical reaction during which molecules of water (H2O) are split into hydrogen cations (H+) (conventionally referred to as protons) and hydroxide anions (OH−) in the process of a chemical mechanism. It is the type of reaction that is used to break down certain polymers, especially those made by step-growth polymerization. Such polymer degradation is usually catalysed by either acid, e.g., concentrated sulfuric acid (H2SO4), or alkali, e.g., sodium hydroxide (NaOH) attack, often increasing with their strength or pH.>

I need a relatively simple way to produce a few milliliters of dry H2 gas. I do NOT want HHO and I do NOT want electrolysis of water, I also would like this method to produce little to no water as a byproduct. I'm looking for generators because the minimum tank size of hydrogen I could buy (unless someone could locate a supplier in the UK that would sell me something the size of a propane tank or smaller) is far too large. I'm Interested in a chemical reaction or hydrocarbon cracking method that would require a maximum of 200 degrees C if it requires energy input, but I don't mind if it's terribly exothermic (unless its an thermite-like reaction, then we have a problem) since I have a very effective cooling system in place for it and the rest of the system. I forgot to add what its for, glow brazing. It'll be ionized and remove surface oxides while simultaneously heating the parts to be brazed.

I've had an interest in how physicists obtain deuterium for their experiments (especially those dealing with nuclear fusion). I know it comes in small quantities in water, in the form of deuterium oxide ('heavy water') . It also comes in the form of 'heavy methane' also. I've looked at several patents dealing with extracting deuterium from such sources. Is their any do-it-yourself (DIY) techniques that could use every day materials to obtain deuterium?

I've made several hydrogen generators via electrolysis, but every time I failed to store the generated hydrogen under (some) pressure. In this-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9Q6gDKP2R0 video they used an emptied fire extinguiser to store the hydrogen. The only problem with this is that they use a chemical reaction to generate the hydrogen whereas I want to use a renewable source (electricity). I have a compressor so I could use that to generate the pressure. Has anyone got any ideas on how I could store hydrogen under pressure? Thanks

I wan't to fill a chamber with hydrogen, have a chamber of the same size linked with it, with a heavy visible gas in it, then as I pump out the hydrogen the heavy gas displaces it and I can see when I need to stop pumping and refill with hydrogen. What gas can I use, I know just about any visible gas will work because hydrogen is the lightest, but it would be nice if it was heavier than average air so I could allow air to flow into my heavy gas chamber to displace it. Or can I just die the air with some kind of smoke from my smoke machine. Yes hydrogen is extremely explosive, so this would be on a very, very small scale with hopefully 0 oxygen.

The first manned, hydrogen-powered plane has been successfully tested in the skies above Spain, its makers say.The small, propeller-driven craft, developed by aviation giant Boeing, made three short flights at an airfield south of Madrid, the company said.It was powered by hydrogen fuel cells, which produce only heat and water as exhaust products.The tests could pave the way for a new generation of greener aircraft, the company said.Boeing's chief technology officer John Tracy said the flights were "a historical technological success" and "full of promises for a greener future".Small futureThree test flights of the two-seater aircraft took place in February and March at an airfield at Ocana, south of Madrid. The plane was modified to include a hybrid battery and fuel cell system used to power an electric motor coupled to a conventional propeller. Hydrogen-powered planes have been flown before, but never with a human pilot onboard.BBC Story
