Title: AN APPARATUS FOR GENERATING HYDROGEN
Abstract:
The invention provides an apparatus for generating hydrogen; the apparatus comprising: a container having dimensions that enable it to be held in a human hand; the container having a hollow interior defining a reaction chamber, and being provided with a reactant inlet chamber for receiving solid unit dosage forms comprising one or more reactants capable of reacting in the presence of a liquid co-reactant to form hydrogen; wherein the reactant inlet chamber has a first reclosable opening which opens to the container exterior for receiving the solid unit dosage forms; and a second reclosable opening communicating with the reaction chamber through which the solid unit dosage forms can be introduced into the reaction chamber; at least one of the first and second reclosable openings being provided with a gas tight seal to prevent leakage of hydrogen gas from the reaction chamber; the container further having a hydrogen gas outlet and a liquid co-reactant inlet, each being provided with valves to enable the control of fluid therethrough; whereby in use, the one or more reactants in the solid unit dosage form react in the presence of liquid co-reactant introduced through the liquid co-reactant inlet to generate hydrogen.
