Pure hydrogen output with use of aluminum.

I found this on the web. It is a reply to a student asking how to make hydrogen.. I believe everyone here has seen the Cornish hydrogen generator.. I'm curious though:



Quote from
"One way to split H2 from the O is to take aluminum and submerge it in water, connect one end of the aluminum to - and the other to + the best way to do this without draining your power source or creating a short is to use a transformer of some kind, probably a stepdown for voltage, which will reduce the voltage but increase the current, if you can generate the electrical current through some means besides a battery, such as a manual crank or a motor powered crank hooked up to a generator that would be ideal, which you can run through a full wave rectifier circuit and then a capacitor network to produce DC. any way, to put it simply, put as many amps through that piece of aluminum as possible, this will oxidize the aluminum and form a slag that will drop to the bottom of the water OXIDIZE means that the Aluminum now has that O from the H2O attached to it, leaving the H2 free. to capture the H2 be sure to conduct all of this in an enclosed container to snare that hydrogen. (side note, try at your own risk, not responsible for anything that you might do, such as electrocution or explosion related accidents) Take a store bought adapter, one of those changeable voltage adapters clip the wire so that you have a + and a - then find some 'gator clips, with the plier closable ends, attach to the frayed ends, now find some aluminum, pop-cans have a significant amount of aluminum, but you need a wire or rod type shape for best results, then attach 'gator clips and submerge in the pressure tight container to get that H2!!"

Seems simple enough.. I think I'll try it. Lot easier to control than the old draino thing..

I just tried a simplified version of this by "coiling " some pure AL tig rod .Needless to say with a small battery charger all it did was keep tripping the overload.

Isn't the process similar to a toaster, welding machine, or hairdryer?
