I currently have two proposals for the Department of Energy's "ARPA-E" (Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy) grant program back in November of 2011.
The first proposal is for an affordable method of breaking up water into hydrogen and oxygen gases both of which are renewable flammable gases.
The second is a proposal to be funded for development of room temperature superconductors of which there are 17 elements in this category of superconductors. The element Silicon is one of them which is used to manufacture computer chips and photovoltaic cells.
I would like to read what others out there in internet land think.
What do you know about superconductors?superconductors.

I am hoping that you have an advanced degree in chemistry or material physics to be able to work on such technologies. Numerous approaches using catalysts have been used to try to break down water efficiently. I ask only because your statement about oxygen being a flammable gas is not accurate although that may only be an attempt to dumb down the discussion for your audience. As for room temperature semiconductors, this is another area of highly competitive research but as of yet, researchers are still quite a ways off. My honest thought that you would need a very smart team to work on these two technologies as opposed to just a single person.
