Title: COMBINATION OF HYDROGEN AND OXYGEN

Abstract

An efficlent and improved method is described for continuously recombining hydrogen and oxygen resultlng from subjection of an aqueous solution to lonizing radiations, such as in the case of an aqueous homogeneous fueled nuclear reactor. The method consists ln providing copper ions in the solution to an extent of from 0.001 molar to about 0.2 molar, and at a temperature of from 150 icient laborato C to about 450 icient laborato C, with corresponding pressure.
