Main Article Content


This research aims to make a 4/4 plate Al-Cu plate-based hydrogen generator. The method used is design and engineering as well as testing the performance of the gas produced during the electrolysis process of water. The results obtained are hydrogen reactors that are capable of producing 7.5 mL of gas from water with a supporting voltage of 2 V and an electric current of 0.6 A. In sodium acetate (CH3COONa) material 144 mL of gas is produced at a supporting voltage of 2 V and an electric current of 0.6 A.
