Plasma electrolysis at lower voltages

  • At this point this isn't plasma electrolysis anymore, but I just wanted to point out that if the electrolyte concentration is increased enough (or water allowed to evaporate), the electrolyte becomes more like a thick slurry than a regular aqueous solution. Subsequently, electrolysis at sufficiently high voltages becomes almost like molten salt electrolysis.


    This appears to be what is going on in the video below, where a soft dark metallic-looking material that could possibly be NaK (with some iron from the anode) is produced from the electrolyte accumulating on the cathode, and which I think does not violently explode due to the high pH of the slurry.

    Occasionally I tried to lift the dark formation out of the jar but it turned white/oxidized quickly.

  • The textbooks revisions are written in the research laboratories and genius undergraduate programs... not the university lecture halls and classrooms.


    If you want to learn something new every day you must be ignorant and you must be smart... That goes for textbooks and theories too I suppose.
