Abstract

The present paper discusses about noble idea on various reactions including hydrides, hydrogen peroxide and nano-sized metal powders, which do not emit toxic materials as well as carbon dioxide. Here in this paper, the very first-ever concept that heat energy can be generated from the direct reaction between sodium borohydride and hydrogen peroxide is presented. Sodium hydride as fuel can supply hydrogen reacting with oxygen provided by the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide solution. Solid sodium borohydride can be resolved in water and treated as liquid solution for the easy handling and the practical usage although its solid powder can be directly mixed with hydrogen peroxide for the higher reactivity. The thermodynamic analysis was conducted to estimate adiabatic reaction temperatures from these materials. The preliminary experiment on the reactions conducted using sodium borohydride powder and hydrogen peroxide water solution revealed that the self-propagating reaction can occur and that its reactivity increases with an increase of hydrogen peroxide concentration.
