Does stripping the electrons off of hydrogen atoms affect it's boiling point in any way?

  • $\begingroup$ I intended full ionization. Can a hydrogen still be liquefied if all of it's electrons are stripped off? $\endgroup$ – Derek Seabrooke Oct 21 '19 at 14:02

Liquid hydrogen bubble chambers show that LH2 can be ionized. The LH2 is supercooled. A traveling particle ionizes sone atoms, which then nucleate the formation of bubbles as the LH2 boils.
