1766 - Henry Cavendish, was a British scientist noted for his discovery of hydrogen or what he called "inflammable air". He described the density of inflammable air, which formed water on combustion, in a 1766 paper "On Factitious Airs". Antoine Lavoisier later reproduced Cavendish's experiment and gave the element its name (hydrogen).
1776 - Dutch scientist Martinus van Marum did various experiments with electricity. During one of his experiments (Groningen, The Netherlands) he created Oxygen and Hydrogen gas using electrolises. He discovered (by accident?) that this mixture can be ignited by an electric spark. Martinus van Marum, Delft, Groningen, Harlem, 1750 - 1837
1781 - Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier, Paris, 1743-1794, was a French nobleman prominent in the histories of chemistry, finance, biology, and economics. He stated the first version of the law of conservation of mass, recognized and named oxygen (1778) and hydrogen (1783)
In the year 1781 Lavoisier wrote;
" Léau est le grand réservoir, où la Nature trouve la masse de combustibles, qu'elle forme continuellement sous no yeux, et la vegetation paroît être son grand moyen " (M.1781. p. 491).
Which says; " Water is the large tank, where Nature finds the fuel mass, what continuously forms under our eyes, and the vegetation cell to be its great means".
1789 - Dutch chemists Paets van Troostwijk and Joan Rudolph Deiman (Amsterdam) proved with their experiments for the first time, that water his elements are exactly 1 part oxygen and 2 parts hydrogen while using electricity to split water in his elements. They used a spark tocombine the elements again in water. In the same experiment they were able to measure the exact volume of the elements.
1803 - Robert Hare developed and experimented with the oxy-hydrogen blowpipe
1826 - Thomas Drummond discovered that an intense illumination is created when an oxyhydrogen flame is directed at a cylinder of calcium oxide, which can be raised to white heat without melting. He built the so called "Drummond Light" also calles "Limelight". This "Drummond Light'' 'can be created with oxyhydrogen gas and calcium oxide.
1860 - Mr. Jean Joseph Etienne Lenoir from Belgium/ France built the first car that produced its own combustible hydrogen fuel by onboard electrolysis (powered by a battery).
1875 - Jules Verne in his book The Mysterious Island, wrote the following age:
"Water decomposed into its primitive elements, and decomposed doubtless by electricity, which will then have become a powerful and manageable force. Yes, my friends, I believe that water will one day be employed as a fuel".
1888 - Al lot of research concerning Hydrogen gas applications and production was being done in the late 1800's. For example A: Adding carbon vapour to hydrogen flame for getting a better flame for lightning and heating. B: Safely burning Hydrogen mixed with Oxygen gas by using a Bunsenburner and the use of a metal grill for flashback protection. They already new very well how to use the gas at that time. But it wasn't economical because of the high price, and limited availability, of electricity making Hydrogen gas.
1918 - Mr. Charles H. Frazer patented the first "Hydrogen Booster" system for internal combustion engines. USA Patent.No. 1,262,034 He stated that his invention: 1 - increases the efficiency of internat combustion engines. 2 - Complete combustion of hydrocarbons. 3 - Engine will stay cleaner. 4 - Lower grade of fuel can be used with equal performance.
1935 - Inventor Henry Garrett patented a electrolytic carburator and let a car run just on tap water.
1943 - 1945 - Because of serious conventional fuel shortage at the end of WW2, the British army used Oxyhydrogen gas generators in their tanks, boats and other vehicles to get better mileage and to to prevent engine overheating for vehicles used in africa. They used generators just alike some of the today's HHO fuel savers (especially the tubular cell design). Right after the WW2 the government ordered to remove and destroy all generators from the vehicles.
.....But at least a few WW2 generators survived. In the mid 1970's a German company named Lötgerat produced Oxyhydrogen generators. They used all new materials and parts except.........the BG Cell and the bubbler. They are obviously much older and made roughly of solid steel. Made in the same way as all of the other army equipment. Built to last. That is why the unit in the picture is still in working order.
1962 - William A. Rhodes (USA) is the first inventor known to patent an electrolyzer that produced the simple 'single-ducted' gas we now call Brown's Gas In the mid 1960's Mr. Rhodes formed a company (Henes Corp.) with partners who took control of the operation and cut him out. This was a bad mistake, because they did not yet have Mr. Rhodes most efficient design.Henes Corp. eventually failed, went through several hands and was eventually acquired by Dennis McMurray. The company, now named Arizona Hydrogen , is doing well in Phoenix Arizona USA. Watch mr. William A. Rhodes Video.

Yull Brown, Bulgaria / Australia 1922-1998
"THE DISCOVERY OF BROWN'S GAS" Born in 1922 in Bulgaria, Yull Brown went to Australia in 1958 as an electrical engineer with a deep belief that Jules Verne’s vision of "There is fire in water", could be realized. He worked as an unknown laboratory technician until he could develop his own laboratory. By 1978 Professor Yull Brown was being described by The Australian Post as "the most talked about inventor in Australia today". He "discovered" in the early 1970's a proprietary method of water electrolysis that yields a nonexplosive mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gas in the precise atom-to-atom ratio of two volumes of hydrogen to one volume of oxygen.
One of the first BG Generators, BN-2000E, 1993
Professor Yull Brown discovered that hydrogen and oxygen gas can be safely mixed (plus or minus 5 percent) if that ration is strictly maintained. The result is Brown's Gas, a hydrogen and oxygen mixture that can be economically generated, compressed, and used safely. In Professor Brown's process, the hydrogen and oxygen gases are immediately and intimately mixed at exactly the right ratio (the scientific term is "stoichiometric mix"). Brown's Gas is produced within an electrolysis cell, without membranes and with safety, invented by Professor Yull Brown. Watch original Dr.Yull Brown Video
1977 The NASA Lewis Research Center conducted a series of tests using a large block American made V8 piston engine, fully insturmented and mounted on a dyno. They were interested in what effects Hydrogen had on the operation of the engine. The results were stunning. They also proposed an alternate method to produce the gas which is more efficient than the usual electrolysis. NASA Document: NASA TN D-8478 C.1 dated May 1977
1990 - Mr. Juan Carlos Aquero patented an energy transforming system for internal combustion engines which uses Oxygen-hydrogen & steam. Europeen patent:0 405 919 A1 / 90306988.8 26-06-1990.
1990 - Mr. Stanley A. Meyer got a patent on a method for the production of a Oxygen-Hydrogen Fuel Gas. Patent number: 4,936,961 - June 26, 1990. What made it very special was the dielectric resonant circuit. Mr. Stanley Meyer made a Buggy with only water as fuel. More info.
1991 - In 1991 KIM, SANG NAM from Korea visited Yull Brown's laboratory in suburbs of Sydney. This was the start of Brown's cooperation with B.E.S.T. KOREA (of browngas.com ** without the S) They succeeded in innovative technology development regarding Browns Gas(They call it Brown Gas.). Today B.E.S.T. Korea together with B.E.S.T. Norinco, located in Bautou China is one of world's largest manufacturers of original Browns Gas generators.

1994 - Eagle-Research, George Wiseman, Canada started an independent research program on Brown's Gas / HHO gas in 1994. And threw aside traditional electrolyzer technology; drew upon their research in alternative energy. Interestingly, Eagle-Research independently duplicated William Rhodes most efficient design, with enhancements. William Rhodes has reviewed and confirmed the brown's gas technology. Today Eagle research sells browns gas generators and many other alternative energy solutions. www.eagle-research.com/

2006 - Mr. Dennis J. Klein and mr. R.M. Santilli from Florida USA got a patent for an: "Apparatus and method for the conversion of water into a new gaseous and combustible form and the combustible gas formed thereby." Patent No. US 2006/0075683 A1. The gas they produce they call HHO. Mr. Denny Klein of Aquygen, Fl.
2007 - Siam Waterflame LTD. United Kingdom got their Brown's Gas generators CE approved officially.
2008 - It has been proven that internal combustion engines boosted with Oxygen Hydrogen run smoother using less convential fuel while reducing air pollution. See Applications, Automotive.
Large multinationals like Samsung start using Brown's Gas because the unique properties of BG.
2010 - Brown's Gas - Oxyhydrogen technology is getting popular in Asia. The need for environmentally friendly technology combined with the economical benefits gives Brown's Gas / HHO technology the attention it deserves.
2011 - 2013 BG technology has been settled in Asia. Serious part of industry. Other countries are catching up. Efficiency of generators much improved. Most major industrial companies in Asia are using BG equipment.
