HYDROGEN PRODUCTION BY INFRARED LASER ELECTROLYSIS ON NACL SOLUTION
Keywords:Hydrogen production, Er, YAG, electrolysis, NaCl
AbstractA method referred as Hydrogen Production by Infrared assisted Electrolysis (HyPIR) is presented in this work. Two graphite electrodes are immersed in electrolytic cell containing 0.517 g of NaCl and 7 ml of ethanol C2H5OH solution which act as supplements for a partial oxidation reaction. Erbium YAG laser with wavelength of 2.94 mm and 57.6 mJ energy per pulse at a pulse rate of 4 Hz is illuminated directly on the electrolytic solution. The irradiating light facilitates the dissociation of water by stretching the inter-atomic hydrogen-oxygen bonds in the electrolytic solutions and directly increase the rate of hydrogen yields.Â
