Kathmandu. Since ancient times, there have been many attempts to make gold from a mixture of metals and chemicals. This method of making gold from various other metals is called alchemy. Scientists have finally achieved the first success in this genre. Scientists have succeeded in making gold from water for the first time.

Physical chemists at the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, have turned water into a golden shiny metal with the help of alkaline metals.

Alkaline metal is a group of reactive elements like sodium potassium. When exposed to water, such alkaline metals become explosive. So the experiment was designed to slow down the reaction between such alkaline metals and water and prevent them from exploding. A syringe was then filled with potassium and sodium, which became liquid at room temperature. It was placed in a vacuum chamber.

Through a syringe, the researchers added water vapor to each drop of the mixture. In which a very thin sheet equal to one tenth of a micrometer was prepared. The electrons in the sheet rapidly dissolved in water with metallic ions.

In a few seconds, the letter turned into a bubble of gold. However, the scene of gold being made from water lasted only for a few seconds. However, researchers believe it is widely available. The experiment did not require high pressure.

According to scientists, most substances are converted to metals at very high speeds. The molecules of the metal come so close that the outer electrons participate in the reaction and the substance becomes an indicator of the general metallurgical electricity.

The same thing happens with 48 megabar pressure on water. But this is not possible in laboratory technology. So the researchers used alkaline metals for electron participation. In support of the agency
