Hydrogen-fueled cars are the wave of the future and will be a big factor in our future energy consumption and transport systems. However, creating a hydrogenfueled economy using efficient anode for water splitting requires some research and engineering know-how. This article presents a description of how an alternative anode for water splitting is used in this new hydrogen-fueled economy.

The most efficient anode for water splitting used in this study is based on platinum. It is referred to as a tandem anode because it consists of two metal anodes separated by a thin film of platinum. When voltage is applied to the hydrogen atom, it splits the molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. This method of electrolysis has some disadvantages.

One of these disadvantages is that hydrogen atoms do not always get split. For instance, in a process called electrolysis, the molecule of water is split into hydrogen and oxygen. Only the hydrogen is separated out of the water molecules. Oxygen and hydrogen are usually considered to be one single entity. So, using an anode for hydrogen-fueled economy using efficient anode for water splitting can actually interfere with the energy production and electrical power generation from chemical reaction at other times. So, an anode for hydrogen-fueled economy using efficient anode for water splitting needs to be very stable.
