Abstract:

Numerical integration of a set of rate equations applicable to the hydrogen-oxygen system suggests that it should be possible to recover H2 and O2 by rapid cooling of low-pressure equilibrium mixtures from a solar furnace. Using the University of Minnesota 4.2 m solar furnace, we were able to recover explosive mixtures of H2 and O2 from water which had been heated to about 2100K. The numerical calculations and the experiment are described.
