We don’t know yet what this could promise, but Hyper-Oxygenated water looks like this:
You take pressurized Oxygen ions and combine them with water to up to about 5 atmospheres or 75 psig to obtain a combustible fluid. At ambient pressures, water can absorb the oxygen and create a pH of 10.5, and we theorize that each atmosphere of pressure added would increase the concentration by about 40% on the pH scale. One atmosphere added may add .4 to the 10.5 based on what has been observed in the GC Green Carbon lab.
“Working up from these pressures, 10 atmospheres brings this solution to close to a 50% solution” says Viva Cundliffe. “The catalytic effects of the oxygen ions under pressure in water have yet to be studied, but the water does not need to be highly purified according to our findings.” The fuel may have 90% of the energy density of 99% hydrogen peroxide and an autoignition profile that would be practical for ships and possibly aircraft as a co fuel. “Certainly oxygenation this way, along with the hydrogen content deserves to be studied further”.
The added pressure concentrating the fuel may be the property that was missing from Brown’s Gas that would give this potential fuel a practical basis to be applied.
With more funding this research will be on the bench as the world looks for decarbonised fuels to mix with hydrocarbons or standalone non GHG emitting fuels.
