Generating Hydrogen With a Liquid Aluminum-Gallium Alloy

New process generates hydrogen from aluminum alloy to run engines, fuel cells. ‘A Purdue University engineer has developed a method that uses an aluminum alloy to extract hydrogen from water for running fuel cells or internal combustion engines, and the technique could be used to replace gasoline. The method makes it unnecessary to store or […]

A New Class of Aluminum-Hydrogen Compounds

Researchers Create New Class of Compounds. ‘Findings may have applications in solid rocket fuel and/or the hydrogen economy. Researchers have synthesized a new class of aluminum-hydrogen compounds with a unique chemistry that could lead to the development of more powerful solid rocket fuel and may also, in time, be useful for hydrogen-powered vehicles or other […]

Erionite and Mesothelioma Lung Cancer

Not Only Asbestos Causes Mesothelioma Lung Cancer. ‘Mesothelioma lung cancer is usually associated with asbestos exposure. In fact there are many other risk factors that cause mesothelioma cancer. One of them is the erionite. Erionite is a naturally occurring fibrous mineral that belongs to a group of minerals called zeolites. Zeolites are hydrated aluminosilicates of […]
