Nitrogen ions have been used to create hydrogen in the laboratory, but their use is not as practical as it might be because of the chemical reactions that must take place to generate the hydrogen.
In a new study published in the journal Nano Letters, a team of researchers from the University of Warwick and the National Research Centre for Light and Power in Israel describe how they created a neon-electron by converting carbon dioxide into nitric oxide and water.
The team created a single-atom-thick, thin sheet of the metal, and injected it with liquid oxygen.
The researchers used the liquid nitrogen to melt it down into a liquid nitrogen-rich liquid, which is then pumped into a large chamber to form the electron.
The chamber is filled with an oxygen-rich gas, so the nitrogen atoms are scattered around in the liquid, while oxygen atoms are trapped inside the gas.
After a short time, the electrons are released from the nitrogen and flow into the chamber.
In addition to creating a neon ion, the researchers also created a hydrogen ion.
They heated the nitric acid and hydrogen gas together to form a hydrogen atom.
When the nitrogen ion was injected into the same liquid, it caused a large amount of hydrogen to be released from it, as well as an explosion of electrons.
These events were captured in an X-ray diffraction (XRD) of the electron, which was then detected using an XRD detector, and then the electrons were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
They were able to show that the nitrogen ions did indeed create a neon atom.
Their findings are described in the paper Nitrogen ion chemistry: A unique and useful method to produce hydrogen in a liquid environment.
This is not the first time researchers have created neon-like particles by combining two or more elements.
Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) used carbon dioxide to create a single electron by combining nitric and oxygen, and they created neon ions by combining oxygen and nitrogen.
But the team behind the new study found that by using a liquid oxygen gas, the nitrogen atom was also released from one of the nitrogen molecules.
The oxygen atoms were trapped inside an oxygen gas.
The resulting neon atom is also created by combining carbon dioxide with nitric acids and oxygen.
