Abstract:Since our first paper1 Venkataramaiah reported3 the independent discovery of the active form of hydrogen, distinguished by its ability to reduce potassium permanganate solution rapidly at room temperature. He produced it first in the alternating current corona, but made the interesting observation that it is produced in measurable quantities when oxygen is exploded in an excess of hydrogen. Since all other methods of its preparation, including those reported below, are dependent on prolonged and intense ioniza… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
