Hydrogen
HydrogenHydrogen has been considered to be used as an energy fuel since when it was first identified as an isolated chemical element by Cavendish in 1766, and received its name (meaning water-former) from Lavoisier in 1781; even Jules Verne described hydrogen as the coal of the future in one of his novels. In 1839, Grove conducted the earliest experiments on the use of hydrogen in a prototypical FC; in 1870, Otto used a mixture containing 50% of hydrogen in his experiments for the first internal combustion engine; and in 1923, Haldane successfully produced hydrogen with the energy from a windmill. In 1938, Sikorski recognized the viability of hydrogen as a fuel for transportation as a propeller gas for helicopters [
