Reactive metals like aluminum generate hydrogen gas when it reacts with water. Aluminum, despite its high chemical affinity with water, cannot continue the reaction due to the passive oxide layers formed on its surface. When the reaction is assisted by electrical energy dissipation in the form of discharge, the reaction is more likely to be sustained. In this report, some preliminary experimental results are presented regarding the hydrogen generation based on this scheme.
