  3. Aluminum: a safe, economical, high energy density material for energy storage, transport and splitting water to make hydrogen on demand

    30 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Jerry M. Woodall

    In 1968, a team lead by the author discovered that liquid gallium saturated with aluminum at room temperature would split water into hydrogen gas, alumina and heat. More recently his current team has discovered that bulk, solid Al rich alloys will also split water in the same manner. Since 1)...
