Improvement of the Membrane - less Electrolysis Technology for Hydrogen and Oxygen Generation

Victor Solovey, Nguyen Tien Khiem, Mykola Mykolaevich Zipunnikov, Andrii Shevchenko


To provide the most efficient electrolysis process of hydrogen and oxygen generation and the electrode twain design there were studied the following:

-    The process of high pressure hydrogen and oxygen cyclic generation in the membrane less electrolysis systems.

-          The permissible ranges of voltage variation on the electrodes were determined depending on the electrochemical reactions taking place on the active electrode.

-          There was studied the process of hydrolysis and oxidation of the active electrode hypoferrite at the corresponding half-cycles of hydrogen and oxygen release.

-          There was studied the effect of variation of the distance between the active and passive electrodes onto the electrolysis process efficiency.
