Title: Method of carbon dioxide-free hydrogen production from hydrocarbon decomposition over metal salts

Abstract

A process to decompose methane into carbon (graphitic powder) and hydrogen (H.sub.2 gas) without secondary production of carbon dioxide, employing a cycle in which a secondary chemical is recycled and reused, is disclosed.
