    What is the cheapest and most efficient method to dissociate water in H+ and OH- ? Desirably it should dissociate moderate amounts of water almost instantly.
    For example what about electric fields?

    Upon applying even more intense fields (1.0 V/\AA), a 15-20% fraction of molecules are instantaneously dissociated
    https://arxiv.org/abs/1204.1120

    How exactly can we read the value "1.0 V/\AA"?

    I would say use a stacking battery type lattice/pole construction.

    Pour water into a lattice construct being kept charged constantly. Make sure there is no, or barely any Amps going through, just Volts to draw the poles. Then, you need a way to remove the H+ and OH- particles, i would say put a barrier in between quickly, and drain the water separately from either side of the setup. You will now have 2 types of water, OH- overcharged, and H+ overcharged. I don't know how much effect this would have though.

    Maybe its even impossible to do, it however did sound logical in my own head


    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    I thought about a way to improve MHG generator through use of dissociated water. In this case we need a moderate amounts of dissociated water which is injected in MHD channel under high pressure. If we use the method you proposed, what percentage of water will get instantly dissociated under electric field influence?

    Only a little, say enough to be around pH 5 or 9.. , maybe 4 and 10. Really only a little. Hard to say, needs to be tested before i can be sure.
