ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. -- Scientists at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory observed an unexpected result when combining urine with a newly engineered nano-powder based on aluminum. It instantly releases hydrogen from the urine at much higher rate than with ordinary water. The research team announced earlier this summer that a nano-galvanic aluminum-based powder they were developing produced pure hydrogen when coming into contact with water. The researchers observed a similar reaction when adding their powder to any liquid containing water. "What we do as Army scientists is develop materials and technology that will directly benefit the Soldier and enhance their capabilities," said Dr. Kristopher Darling, an ARL researcher.
