    Are there any commercially available chemicals that can assist in Hydrogen Gas remediation? Thanks.

    There is a free oxygen, which combined with hydrogen gives water.

    Not sure what you are asking about.

    Giving a definition of what you mean by "Hydrogen Gas Remediation" might help us to help you.

    Thanks for the responses. I just joined and have had issues with responding. Probably Norton again. I would like to remediate free hydrogen that is given off during an experiment.

    That's what I figured ... here is a solution: combine it with air and burn it.

    I don't know of anything commercially available. Hydrogen from electrolysis is usually ventilated to maintain hydrogen below explosion limits. Cheap, cheap, cheap. In cases where ventilation isn't suitable, hydrogen getters can be used but they are reactive and very expensive. Here is http://sti.srs.gov/fulltext/rp2000438/rp2000438.html" [Broken] based on sol-gel metal hydride granules.

    Sounds expensive.

    My approach as a kid was always: capture in a balloon, wait for night, light string attached to balloon, watch brief, nice show.
