Main Question or Discussion Point
Is it possible to generate energy from chemicals in a way that would be economical, and safer compared to nuclear energy, such as the removal of electrons, etc?
What do you mean by "removal of electrons"? Do you mean something like a plasma or do you mean ionic compounds?new method of generating electric power by harnessing the natural electrokinetic properties of a liquid, such as ordinary tap water, when it is pumped through tiny microchannels
That won't work. The electrolysis takes more energy than the combustion (or fuel cell) gives off.Chemicalsuperfreak said:H2 + O2 --> H2O
But the safety and economics of it is still in the early development stage.
