PENAMBAHAN KATALIS BIO KARBON AKTIF UNTUK PENINGKATAN PRODUKSI HDROGEN PADA ELEKTROLISIS AIR
Keywords:Hydrogen production, Water elctrolysis, Bio Activated Carbon of Sugarcane Leaves
Air electrolysis is the decomposition of air compounds (H2O) into Oxygen and Hydrogen using an electric current. Currently, the efficiency of conventional electrolysis is about 50%. The use of catalysts is part of an effort to increase Hydrogen production. In this paper, 50 ppm and 100 ppm of Bio Activated Carbon of Sugarcane Leaves (BKADT) have been added as catalysts to increase Hydrogen production. FTIR testing has shown that BKADT has an aromatic ring functional group that has a magnetic field. By using ImageJ software, it has been proven that the BKADT surface has an electric charge which is dominated by a positive charge. The magnetic field plays a role in Hydrogen, where the electric charge plays a role in increasing its dissolution so that it becomes a good conductor. As a result, a large increase in BKADT increases Hydrogen production. The greatest hydrogen production of 14.5 ml for 10 minutes was obtained at the addition BKADT of 100 ppm.
