  • Significant amount of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), 6-140 times water (H2O), was observed in the combustion products, which was attributed to the low temperature (~300 K) and high pressure (2- 80 atm) conditions at which the chemical reactions were being taken place. (nanohub.org)

  • Limit to gas production by electrolysis of water? (spudfiles.com)
  • Thus, the standard potential of the water electrolysis cell (Eocell = Eocathode − Eoanode) is −1.23 V at 25 °C at pH 0 ([H+] = 1.0 M). At 25 °C with pH 7 ([H+] = 1.0×10−7 M), the potential is unchanged based on the Nernst equation. (wikipedia.org)

  • The operation of the electrolytic cell using water vapor supplied by a humidified carrier gas has been demonstrated under varying conditions of the gas flow rate, the relative humidity, and the presence or absence of oxygen. (energy.gov)
  • The cell electrolysis performance decreased only slightly for H 2 O-CO 2 mixtures compared to H 2 O electrolysis and was much better than for pure CO 2 electrolysis. (greencarcongress.com)
  • solid oxide electrolysis cell (SOEC). (greencarcongress.com)
  • The electrolysis of one mole of water produces a mole of hydrogen gas and a half-mole of oxygen gas in their normal diatomic forms. (gsu.edu)
  • Combining a mole of hydrogen gas and a half-mole of oxygen gas from their normal diatomic forms produces a mole of water. (gsu.edu)
  • The formation of water from it's elements produces, in addition to water, a tremendous amount of energy, 572 kJ to be exact. (sbc.edu)
