Just Add Water: How Scientists Are Using Silicon to Produce Hydrogen on Demand
Buffalo NY (SPX) Jan 25, 2013
Super-small particles of silicon react with water to produce hydrogen almost instantaneously, according to University at Buffalo researchers. In a series of experiments, the scientists created spherical silicon particles about 10 nanometers in diameter. When combined with water, these particles reacted to form silicic acid (a nontoxic byproduct) and hydrogen - a potential source of energy for fuel cells. The reaction didn't require any light, heat or electricity, and also created hydrogen about 15 ... read more
