Whatever happened to the use of perfluoroalkanes as breathable liquids or blood substitutes?

Some liquid perfluoroalkanes have very high solubilities and carrying capacities for gases like oxygen and carbon dioxide. In the 1980s and 1990s there were experiments showing that animals could &...

Would the partial pressure of O2 in the system affect the rate of the decomposition of H2O2?

In my Bio 1 lab we studied the way catalase catalyzes the decomposition of H2O2 and at the end it asked me what conditions would affect the rate of the reaction. It was the type of question that ...

Is it possible to make a reversible "Solid State" Hydrogen fuel cell using Ammonia Borane and Iron Oxide? [closed]

Well, I saw this video about hydrogen reduction, in which pure hydrogen gas is exposed to iron oxide at high temperatures, producing water vapor and leaving pure iron behind. And as such, I wondered ...

Why does the oxygen in NaOH (sodium hydroxide) acquire an electron from the sodium if it's going to become unstable and give away the electron? [closed]

Mind you that the oxygen is already stable, having an even number of electrons and protons? Is the oxygen really neutral when it has an even number of electrons and protons?

How does hydrogen and oxygen combine to make water? [closed]

When two hydrogen atoms fuse with one oxygen atom to create a molecule of water, each hydrogen atom donates its single electron to the oxygen atom, resulting in 10 electrons for the oxygen, instead of ...
