You can place a balloon on top of the flask to collect hydrogen gas to ignite. (11) described hydrogen generators in which aluminum was reacted with an aqueous solution of 5.75 M sodium hydroxide. You need aluminum, sodium hydroxide and some water. A Beverage in a GLASS bottle 4. The process for producing hydrogen gas according to the present invention consists of reacting aluminum with water in the presence of sodium hydroxide as a catalyst.

The reaction is highly exothermic once established and is accompanied by the rapid evolution of hydrogen gas. Now, to recover the liquid metal you can drop the resulting alumina suspension in caustic soda (NaOH) and the liquid metal will quickly come to surface, ready to be reused. You will need the following materials to make, store and use hydrogen. Stockburger et.al. Balloons 5. There you go! Drain Cleaning Crystals (Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH)) 2. However, another product is also produced in this reaction, apart from hydrogen, yet this is a soluble salt that remains withinthe solution. 2. Aluminum Foil (1Meter or so will do) 3.
Hydrogen gas is produced as a product from the reaction between aluminium and sodium hydroxide solution. Put a few pellets of NaOH on the aluminum foil 3.

Then, also, a container like a flask, or a bottle (even a plastic bottle would do, but it should be hermetic).Also, the balloon itself. Pure Hydrogen from only a chemical reaction!

It is possible for hydrogen to be a byproduct of a reaction between water and regular aluminum, but only at extremely high temperatures or with added catalysts. Water 7.AND MOST OF ALL SAFETY EQUIPMENT A new process to obtain hydrogen from water using aluminum in sodium aluminate solutions is described and compared with results obtained in aqueous sodium hydroxide. We had to hold a long tube vertically over a jar to condense the steam and let it run back into the jar. €The hydrogen, being a light gas, starts moving upwards where it can be gathered within the balloon. Sodium aluminate is also formed by the action of sodium hydroxide on elemental aluminium which is anamphoteric metal. 1. When aluminum and sodium hydroxide come into contact with one another, there is quite a vigorous reaction. An apparatus for carrying out the method is also described. The types of reactions found to occur between aluminum, sodium hydroxide, and water are shown below: A 25 gallon water tank with Sodium Hydroxide and Aluminum Foil gassing out into a bubbler = Fun times.
Even using chunks of aluminum cut from an old window frame, the solution got so hot, it boiled. Hiraki et al. Ignition source 6. ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: If the reaction starts to slow down (bubbling appears to stop), squirt a little more water on the reaction to ensure any reactants left will mix together. Squirt some water onto the NaOH pellets. Drop the “activated” aluminum in water, and you’ll start noticing how hydrogen bubbles start to emerge to the surface (see picture).

fabricated an apparatus for reacting aluminum dross in sodium hydroxide solutions (0.5 M). The reaction of aluminum and sodium hydroxide generates buckets of hydrogen. However, this was a small scale apparatus (<10 g aluminum) that was used to evaluate temperature effects (36–60 °C), explore pressurized hydrogen generation (10 MPa), and perform life cycle assessment of the process. observed, as well as the regeneration of sodium hydroxide via the precipitation of aluminum hydroxide.
