Water battery in partnership with the Witsus Center for Scientific Research in the Netherlands, researchers from the Graz University of Technology in Austria have been able to produce electrically charged water by means of a floating water bridge. 
Until its scientific rediscovery in 2007 at the Graz University of Technology, the phenomenon of the “water bridge” discovered in the nineteenth century had been forgotten.

The interesting new old method is this:

If you put an amount of ultrapure filtered water in two cups and exposed it to a high voltage, the liquids would move along the sides of each cup and form a floating water bridge between the two vessels.

The water flows into that bridge in both directions and is in a brand new condition with structural properties and densities of their own.

Now researchers have shown through this study that this floating water bridge produces electrically charged water and stores charge for at least a short time.

Proton Electric Charge:

The water here is not electronically charged but rather protonated.

This new type of water is either negatively or positively charged depending on whether it contains more or fewer protons.

The study shows that in anode water (at an elevator where the water is positively charged) protons are formed in the course of the electrolysis process taking place.

These hydrogen nuclei (protons) flow through the water bridge into the cathode water (negatively charged) in the other vessel, then the said nuclei are neutralized (de-charged) by the hydroxyl ions.

Since the protons are moving at a finite (finite) velocity, so there is always an excess of protons in one container of water and a shortage of protons (equal to the excess) in the other.

In the event that the water bridge is suddenly turned off (separating the high voltage from the water in the two vessels), the proton charges remain in the vessels (one with negatively charged water and one with positively charged water), which can be measured by spectroscopy of the resistors in each vessel.

The first investigations also showed that the liquid charge remained stable for an entire week.

From aqueous battery to low-waste chemistry:

The realization that such water bridges could be used as electrochemical or chemical-organic reactors opens up many potential industrial applications.

For example, materials can be exposed with other materials in the water bridge in order to create chemical reactions, and water can become a “water battery” as a store of electrical charge, in addition to allowing the production of acid (acids) and alkalis (basic materials) without producing any corresponding ionic contrasts (without Acidic water or alkaline water production).

Of course, this paves the way for environmentally friendly cleaning agents and materials in particular, in addition to reducing the waste produced by chemical processes, as well as opening up new possibilities for medical applications.
