    Post Water and Salts

    I think that if we mix a salt with water, we can make a perfect electrolytical solution for power. We can increase the attraction between the molecules of the salt with the van der waals forces of the water molecules by heating the solution. The process's proliferation would immediate from heat energy maybe from a substance that can easily absorb energy and then intensify, sort of a natural battery with made parts

    And what will all this accomplish?

    Regardless of which salt you choose to use, you will wind up producing only a tiny amount of hydrogen and oxygen and a LOT of the hydroxide of the metallic component of the salt and a fair amount of the non-metallic component of the salt. For example, take common table salt - sodium chloride. The primary products will be chlorine gas (bad stuff!) and sodium hydroxide (also bad stuff!) and the hydrogen produced will be negligible. Basic chemistry 101.
