Q.

Science & Technology Miracle :A new aluminum alloy could convert sea or freshwater into drinking water while also extracting hydrogen to generate power.

Such a technology could help provide power and drinking water to remote villages in Asian and African nations, said Jerry Woodall, Purdue University professor of electrical and computer engineering.

The alloy contains aluminum, gallium, indium and tin. Immersing the alloy in freshwater or saltwater causes a spontaneous reaction, splitting the water into hydrogen and oxygen molecules.for power generation much cheaper comparatively .
