Abstract

H2 generation from the reaction between Mg nanoparticles and water can be significantly promoted by low cost chlorides. The promotion effect exhibits strong correlation with the OH(-) affinity of the corresponding cation. This interesting observation offers a simple and effective solution to portable H2 generation under mild conditions.
