There must be something that prevents it from happening in the majority of cola drinkers.
Which one? Losing teeth or losing calcium which you will not know until age 65
I thought the goal of this inquiry was an energy dense combustable liquid fuel- cost or sustainability being of no concern.
That is correct.
The force is strong
What about thermite. It can be used as a catalyst. The absorbed energy would be intensified exciting maybe a volatile liquid like hydrochloric acid.
And that would get you... what, exactly?? Hot HCL (and corrosive vapor) and what else? :shrug:
Thermite is a aluminum powerbase with with an oxider like ferrous (sp) oxide. I used this to make minibombs as a kid but made sure the servant ignited it....Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!. It was safe. No need to use HCL. We never used liquids for fireworks as some are highly hygroscopic. But we are not making fireworks here....
It is going nowhere...we need a student doing BS in Chemistry...it will be fresh in his/her mind. My degree was so long ago that I did a memory dump when I switched to computers.
Funny thing is, we did a lot of horsing around those days, it is a miracle we did not blow up the lab...oh...memories....
Come to think of it - Since you can get these or substitute ingredients in stores...We are not going to discuss explosive stuff anymore.

I can't think of any liquid fuel that is twice as energy dense as diesel.
