Converting Salt Water into Fuel

When John Kanzius, a retired radio and television broadcaster and engineer, was working with a radio frequency generating device aimed at eradicating cancer cells, he could have not imagined that the experiments would eventually cause a salt water solution to release hydrogen, which could then be burned producing very high temperatures, thus becoming a possible substitute for fuel.

This amazing invention works by using a generator that emits 14-megahertz radio waves that bombard a solution of salt and water. No one knows for certain what happens thereafter but everything indicates that the sodium chloride may weaken the bonds between the strong oxygen and hydrogen atoms in water and the radio waves break apart the bonds and liberate flammable hydrogen gas molecules.
A simple spark is all is needed then to ignite the hydrogen, generating an intense flame that produces enough heat to power up an engine.

This technology could be applied to a power an electric vehicle by using salt water and burn the freed hydrogen. When hydrogen burns it combines with oxygen to produce water and most of the burned hydrogen could be reclaimed to burn again as the radio frequency generator releases the hydrogen again.

Kanzius never meant to invent a substitute for fuel and he is not pursuing that goal neither. Diagnosed with leukemia in 2002, he began building his radio-wave blaster to research the subject of cancer treatment by his own experiences undergoing chemotherapy.
The discovery was made accidentally while he was researching the use of radio waves for desalination. Kanzius said that "In this case we weren't looking for energy, we were looking for something that might do desalinization. The more we tried desalinization, the more heat we produced, until we got fire".

The Kanzius RF Machine uses a capacitor to focus radio waves in a transmitting head to send them to a receiving head. It employs a combination of either gold or carbon nanoparticles and radio waves to heat and destroy cancer cells while ignoring healthy cells.
Four units are currently in service at the MD Anderson Cancer Center and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center received their first unit in May of 2005, and MD Anderson Cancer Center received their first machine in January of 2006. Until targeting is fully viable, Kanzius is considering only making the machine available only to a few well renowned medical centers. As patent holder, he decides who is able to purchase the machines.

On March 4th, John Kanzius is holding a seminar along with Lee Memorial Health System and M.D. Anderson Medical Center at at South Fort Myers High School. The public is invited to attend, so they can learn more about research, it's future implications, and ask questions.
