how to convert hydrogen into some liquid fuel like methanol

Postby yesiamsumit » Wed Jan 16, 2013 11:14 am

i am doing an electrolysis experiment. i can see the oxygen and hydrogen bubbles evolving. now i want to store this hydrogen in some usable form. i think reacting it to convert it into some liquid fuel is the best way to store and use it. how can i do this?

Hello yesiamsumit,

Converting hydrogen into a liquid fuel is certainly a valuable process, but it is also a complicated one. Much effort has gone into this problem over many years.

You can find some of the research by a web search for terms such as "hydrogen liquefier" or "liquid fuel from hydrogen."

Good luck, WW
