(Phys.org)—Splitting water is a two-step process, and in a new study, researchers have performed one of these steps (reduction) with 100% efficiency. The results shatter the previous record of 60% for hydrogen production with visible light, and emphasize that future research should focus on the other step (oxidation) in order to realize practical overall water splitting. The main application of splitting water into its components of oxygen and hydrogen is that the hydrogen can then be used…
Free energy breakthrough(NaturalNews) A team of scientists at the University of Colorado, Boulder, have achieved what appears to be the "holy grail" of water splitting technology for the production and storage of clean, abundant energy. Because sunlight is free, I'm calling this "free energy."
Scientists have found a way to engineer the atomic-scale chemical properties of a water-splitting catalyst for integration with a solar cell and the result is a big boost to the stability and efficiency of artificial photosynthesis. http://phys.org/news/2016-11-solar-cells-boost-water-splitting-catalyst.html
Purified water has salts, chlorine, bacteria, and sediments removed. Water is primarily used as a solvent in skin care products in which it dissolves many of the ingredients that impart skin benefits, such as cleansing and conditioning agents.
Scientists have invented a low-cost water splitter that uses a single catalyst to produce both hydrogen and oxygen gas 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The device could provide a renewable source of clean-burning hydrogen fuel for transportation and industry.
My best friend is a master knitter. I kind of dared her to make this since she has knitted everything else imaginable. So....she did! For me! For my birthday! She said it was the most difficult thing she has ever done!!!!! Not so much the pattern; but, the increasing and decreasing and the split in the back for removing the water bottle. It is all one piece. I love it! Thanks, Pat!!!!
