- Mar 21, 2013Agreed, the only safe material for electrolysis to avoid anode/cathode
contamination would be platinum. Even a platinum plated electrode would be
very expensive. It seems that a lot of your postings amount to nothing more
than alchemy, a theory that sounds plausible, but in practice would never
work. I thought you would have learned from the flash distillation fiasco
that you would test these theories before posting them. Just my 2 cents.

You may also want to be careful with what other compounds that may be
created with the electrical elements that come in contact with the corrosive
alcohol and hence recombined with unknown hydrocarbon materials. I
personally know that stainless materials when combined with alcohols and
electric currents can be eroded!

You're talking about electrolysis of water to remove water from alcohol? If
you haven't tried this, you should just so you know what you're dealing
with. The process is painfully slow and the product is highly explosive.
We did this in 9th grade science class.

Applying electric energy to those electrodes causes the formation of
hydrocarbon. My idea is a variation of what science is doing in that area,
but my main problem is oxygen will be released. Increasing oxygen helps
yeast growth, and oxygen hinders alcohol production by yeast. It might be
possible to do this slowly as the beginning, and then crank it up later on
during fermentation. It will be an experiment to see what will happen. My
main goal will be to see if water and alcohol can be separated by breaking
water into hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrocarbon is just an added bonus.
Electric energy for this experiment is not a problem.
