Gas Chromatography (GC) results for hydrogen as measured from head spaces in water/rock batch reactor experiments. Data show the evolution of hydrogen from Mars-relevant minerals and regolith simulants over time as part of experiments to see if hydrogen generated from martian in situ resources could help support human Mars missions. The data show relatively high hydrogen gas evolution from sulfide minerals and a clay enhanced regolith simulant.
