Submission + - Silicon nanoparticles could lead to on-demand hydrogen generation (gizmag.com)

cylonlover writes: Researchers at the University of Buffalo have created spherical silicon nanoparticles they claim could lead to hydrogen generation on demand becoming a “just add water” affair. When the particles are combined with water, they rapidly form hydrogen and silicic acid, a nontoxic byproduct, in a reaction that requires no light, heat or electricity. In experiments, the hydrogen produced was shown to be relatively pure by successfully being used to power a small fan via a small fuel cell.

Of course there's no reason for it, it's just our policy.
