This research is purposed to produces hydrogen gas as an alternative fuels by environmentally friendly photo catalysis method. The photo catalyst was made of glutamic acid (C5H9NO4) and activated carbon both are dissolved in water in closed glass tube. In addition, halogen lamp with wavelength of 560 nm-580 nm was used as the lighting source. The heat from halogen lamp makes an electron orbit in the catalyst to be elliptical and polar. The photon from halogen lamp makes the electron leaps from its orbit. While the defective graphene on activated carbon gets energy from heat and photon, they will generate a magnetic field. This magnetic field energizes electron spin in glutamic acid and water while the active force in the defect of the carbon attracts the carbon atom in glutamic acid that makes it becomes more active. As a result hydrogen is produced from water. Hydrogen gas produced by the system was measured by MQ-8 sensor inside the reactor tube. The sensor was connected to microcontroller and recorded into computer memory with Arduino Uno Software. Photo catalysis process was tested for 20 minutes. The result shows that the highest hydrogen production occurs at glutamic acid solution with 225 ppm activated carbon.
