HISTORYIn 1671, Robert Boyle discovered the reaction between iron filings and dilute acids. This resulted in the production of hydrogen gas. Hydrogen was recognized as a discrete substance for the first time in London, England on 1766, by a man named Henry Cavendish, he named the gas from a metal-acid reaction "flammable air"..

The dramatic explosion of the Hindenburg in 1937 occurred when hydrogen was ignited.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIESHydrogen is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas.CHEMICAL PROPERTIESHydrogen burns in air or oxygen to produce water. It is very flamable, It also combines readily with other non-metals, such as sulfur, phosphorus, and the halogens.
