    Doping + reducing bonding energy of H2O to local minima = end of dependancy on fossil fuels. Equals H2 on demand, mitigating storage, transportation, and explosive issues.

    The paper by Ulf Bossel (et al) that explains the fallacies of using H2 as a energy carrier (or storage medium) can now be found at

    Sir,

    The limitations posed by this article do not address the nanoscopic potentials and orbital modifications made by Nanotubes.

    Think of a Nickel or Nickel Oxide in a nanotube as having a few molecules of the metal and carbon nanotube periodically. Thus, the material embedded in the nanotube is like a new element in the periodic table. Thus, non of the arguements against its feasibility in the cited paper is relevant.

    LOL......that was the first thing that crossed my mind. I'm sure the H2 advocates would immediately claim that this is a critical step between PV solar cells and a functioning hydrogen car.

    However the fact that Chlorine and sodium hydroxide are byproducts betrays the fact that they are using salt as the electrolyte, which of course means anyone actually employing this technology on a scale to fuel cars will be out-gassing toxic chlorine into the environment AND that the electrodes will degenerate fairly quickly.

    Then add a 30% energy cost to compress the hydrogen, another 10% for leaking, and whatever losses occur inside the fuel cells, and what you've got is a colossal waste of money and energy.

    u
    Not true. The energetics of metals and other materials in Nanotubes has been shown to differ from bulk water. Even if there are byproducts which could be toxic, getterers, molecular sieves, etc can be constructed to be a post catalysis in a manner that could filter out the byproducts. Further, as the spacing of the CNTs and metal/metal oxides are changed, the orbital energies can be modified so that splitting may be optimized from here. Further if the ener

    To say that after a key demonstration of low power, moderate efficiency water splitting should be stopped because without filtration there may be byproducts is more than short sighted.
