FIELDS, FIELDS FIELDS: As ‘Location’ is to Real Estate, so ‘Fields’ are to Physics

 
Since Chemistry, at the root, is really all about fields, ions, spin, frequencies……..
 
What might we be missing into the Nature of Photosynthesis and Catalysts?
How might applications of the ‘field’ potential of certain elements, in various combinations, both chemical and/or electromagnetic, induce ease of water separation, and understanding of photosynthesis applications?
This question has a direct bearing to aspects of LENR and ‘Cold Fusion.

Physics is, after all, of a more disciplined caliber than the conclusion of the lyrics “Is that all there is?”

Professor Pace said large amounts of hydrogen fuel produced by artificial photosynthesis could transform the economy. “That carbon-free cycle is essentially indefinitely sustainable. Sunlight is extraordinarily abundant, water is everywhere – the raw materials we need to make the fuel. And at the end of the usage cycle it goes back to water,”  more

Catalysts: a substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction without itself undergoing any permanent chemical change.  How might applications of the ‘field’ potential of certain elements, as in alkali metals, in various combinations, both chemical and/or electromagnetic, acting as a catalyst, induce ease of water separation? This question has a direct bearing to aspects of LENR and ‘Cold Fusion’

 

Reactivity of an alkali metal with water. All the alkali metals react with water to produce elementary hydrogen and the corresponding alkali hydroxides. The reactivity increases with increasing periodic number. The metals rubidium and cesium explode when brought into contact with oxygen.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

POTASSIUM REACTS EXPLOSIVELY WITH WATER

Variations Available Elemental Potassium Placed in Beaker of Water An exothermic displacement reaction between elemental Potassium and water producing aqueous Potassium Hydroxide and Hydrogen gas.

A Floating Flame
  • Potassium is a light metal that floats on water. But exposure to water causes it to burst into flame. It appears as a lilac-colored flame floating on top of the water.
Potassium-Water Reaction
  • The violent reaction of potassium and water causes this flame. The potassium (K) unites with water (H2O) to form potassium hydroxide (KOH) and hydrogen gas (H2). The chemical equation of this reaction is: 2K + 2H2O = 2KOH + H2. This
    reaction liberates a generous amount of heat.
     
The Explosion
  • Eventually an explosion occurs, but it is not the potassium that explodes. Rather, since the potassium-water reaction results in the production of hydrogen gas and a large quantity of heat, the heat causes the hydrogen gas to react
    explosively with the oxygen in the air.  Read more : http://www.ehow.com/facts_7208191_potassium-explodes-water.html
