Ozone Fuel Cell

(1/1)

delphi007:
I had made a post in the battery technology forum about a liquid ozone battery. I asked the question if oxygen could be used as a medium to store energy. This would be ozone which is made up of 3 oxygen molecules. I said ozone is unstable and wants to give up an electron. I receive a response that hydrogen also wants to give up an electron and the hydrogen fuel cell came to mind. The idea of an ozone fuel cell now intrigues me. I'm not a scientist and have little knowledge of these things. I have not even looked into how a hydrogen fuel cell works. Those in this forum probably know. Could ozone be used in a fuel cell?

delphi007:
I was thinking if you could turn ozone into a liquid and retain it's energy density then the gas could be throttled off of the tank of ozone into a long tube with a copper mesh in it and at the same time be flooded with UV light  which would break the bond releasing the electrons into the copper mesh. Maybe a blue laser could be used from a blue ray drive. :)

I would also add that the copper mesh would need a coating that would resist corrosion. Copper would be oxidized pretty fast. A corrosive resistant coating would be needed for the copper mesh/membrane. Maybe there are other materials that would work better. Gold plated mesh would be nice but I suspect there could be a cheaper material.

what are going to do about ozone being shock senitive?
if your not careful it will convert back to O2 and release all the
energy it took to make it.this is why its not used for rocket fuel.also whats the atraction to use it as a fuel?

I was just throwing out an idea through questions. I don't even know if it's possible so that's why I asked those in this forum who might have some knowledge. Maybe a saturated solution that is not so volatile could be made. Maybe even distilled water itself. Like I said, I'm just throwing an idea out there with question.
