What is Hydrogen?
Most of the hydrogen in nature is distributed in the universe, and it is the initial material that makes up various elements and substances in the universe.
In recent years, hydrogen has been widely used as a power source for fuel cells, which has little damage to the environment and has gradually become an alternative energy source. However, the traditional method of producing hydrogen is costly and complicated.
Due to its extremely easy combination with oxygen, hydrogen makes it a natural reducing agent and is used in antioxidant applications.
In biomedicine, as early as 1975, some people conducted research on hydrogen treatment of tumors.
In 2007, Japanese scholars pointed out that it is selective to breathe 2% of hydrogen or drink saturated hydrogen-rich water and absorb hydrogen through the digestive tract.
Neutralizes hydroxyl radicals.
Hydrogen Production Method
Membrane Electrode Electrolysis (Proton Exchange Membrane)
Ingredients: Water Consumables: Deionization Filter
The principle of membrane electrode electrolysis hydrogen production is the use of low-voltage DC-conducting solid-state membrane electrode for positive and negative electrode electrolysis deionized water, water is separated into hydrogen and oxygen atoms in the form of proton exchange at a special anode interface, oxygen from the anode Directly discharged, hydrogen is polymerized at the cathode into hydrogen molecules. The purity of hydrogen produced by the electrolysis method is about 97% or more.
The by-product of the hydrogen generation by electrolysis is oxygen, and no additional electrolyte is required.
Direct Electrolysis (Alkaline Water)
Raw Material: Water Consumables: Electrolyte
An electrolyte is added to the electrolytic cell through which the water flows, and an electric current is conducted to dissociate the water molecules.
The cathode of the DC electrode generates hydrogen gas; the anode generates oxygen.
Since hydrogen cannot be effectively dissolved in water, it is possible to collect hydrogen and oxygen by means of a drainage gas collection method, the volume of which is 2:1.
The electrolyte may be an ionic compound of a strong acid and a strong base, for example, sodium chloride, but in order to prevent the anode from generating chlorine, sodium hydroxide should be used as the electrolyte.
Magnesium Water Production Method (Chemical Reaction)
Raw material: Water Consumables: Magnesium Products
Hydrogen is generated by the reaction of magnesium rods or magnesium balls with water, and the by-product is magnesium oxide or magnesium hydroxide.
Since hydrogen cannot be effectively dissolved in water, hydrogen can be collected by the drainage gas collection method. The reaction chemical formula is as follows: Mg+2H2O → Mg(OH)2+
