Title: Electrolytic generation of nitrogen

Abstract: The invention provides methods and devices for the electrochemical generation of nitrogen from organic nitrogen compounds, such as hydrazides (RCONHNH.sub.2), the corresponding organic hydrazino-carboxylates (RCO.sub.2 NHNH.sub.2) and amino-guanidine salts (e.g. aminoguanide bicarbonate H.sub.2 NNHC(NH)NH.sub.2.H.sub.2 CO.sub.3). In the hydrazides and hydrazino-carboxylates, "R" may be an alkyl, alkenyl, alkynyl or aryl group, in some embodiments methyl, ethyl, or benzyl. The alkyl, alkenyl and alkynyl groups may be branched or unbranched, substituted or unsubstituted.
