Engine Chemistry


Have you ever wondered whether there is a better chemical reaction to power engines than the hydrocarbon one. One that has common easily obtained  reactants, which are safe, cheap and have no nasty byproducts. This was a question I pondered even when I was at high school.

First just considering the hydrocarbon reaction central to energy generation in every common engine for the last 100 years. In engines it goes something like this.

HC + O2 -> (combusts) CO2 + H2O + ? + energy (powers pistons) + {CO + CH4} + [C + hc] + HC

The terms in brackets are the products of partial combustion, gaseous = {} & engine deposit prone =[](CO+C+hc), and non combustion (HC). Note that CO & ? are often toxic gas emmissions, C & hc often end up as engine clogging deposits, & HC is burnt as waste fuel in that catalytic converter or otherwise drips out onto the road. The HC combustion process has always only been partial anyway. Then considering the high & rising fuel $, the fuel $ in food & everything else, the limited reserves of oil which are already causing political tension around the world, & the CO2 which they say is affecting the climate so that we have to pay a C tax as well. Is it really worth it, of course not.

History tells us that the engine that was invented before the petrol engine was in actual fact one that ran on oxyhydrogen as an electrolysis product of water. The orginal authorities chose the petrol one to be developed, and it’s been used ever since. That was probably the wrong decision then, and it is much more so today. There was a water car museum in the USA which has been open to the public until recently also. The chemistry of the water engine is outlined as follows.

stored H2O -> (electrolysis on-demand) H2 + O2 + OH (Brown’s Gas) -> (combusts) H2O + energy (powers pistons @ 3xHC/gm)

This option is much better than the H2 technology today, because it’s safer in that only enough combustible gas is produced for immediate needs (ie. combusable gas is not stored), & also because it produces 300% energy per unit mass of the HC equivalent compared to the 80% for the H2 alone. Oxyhydrogen technology has been used quite extensively in the manufacturing industry of South Korea. How can we use this technology today? Well building another water engine would cost quite alot, but probably no more than its petrol equivalent. For most though today $ is a problem & so is red tape.

However you can simply (diy steps) & affordably (ie. $100s not $1000s or 10000s) convert your engine to hybrid (HC & Oxyhydrogen simultaneous combustion). Upgrading to hybrid will improve engine economy (10-200%[25-100 often]) performance & life. Success includes 1000s of happy readers & upgraders, commercial ventures & TV documentary publicity. Parts & ongoing original organisation assistance become available with the purchase of the technology in the form of e-books.
