Hydrogen Information

Hydrogen is a colourless, odourless gaseous chemical element. It is the lightest and most abundant element in the universe. Hydrogen presents in water and in all organic compounds. This element chemically reacts with most elements. Hydrogen was discovered by Henry Cavendish in 1776. Hydrogen has 7 isotopes, 3 of them are naturally occurring ones. 2 of naturally occurring isotopes are stable ones.

Most hydrogen is used in the production of ammonia. Also used in balloons and in metal refining. Also used as fuel in rockets. Its two heavier isotopes are: deuterium (D) and tritium (T) used respectively for nuclear fission and fusion.
