The the Chemistry behind the process does not produce what you think it did. Hydrogen H is very unstable and will react instantly with the next H that it finds. Simply put, there is no such thing as H. H in the presence of another H becomes H2.

HO is the same problem, it will instantly bind to the nearest H forming H2O. The reason you have a mix of 2:1 of H2 and O2 is they don't instantly bind to each other when in contact with each other. The H2 bonds have to break releasing the 2 H. The O2 bonds have to break to release the 2 O. Then the H an O join and immediately bond to another H forming H2O. A small spark that will start ionization starts the process and from there it is an uncontrolled chain reaction in the 2 H2 + O2 mixture.

Study Chemistry. Psudo science of this miracle energy form is all over the net, and is chemically wrong.

There is NO free Hydrogen and no HO molecules. There is a mixture of H2 and O2 waiting for a spark to liberate some H and a couple O to start a chain reaction. From there energy is released as the chain reaction begins.

Please study Chemistry. Learn the truth.
