I apologise if this is not your area but can you please tell me if it is possible to break chemical bonds via movement eg when you splash water you break hyrogen bonds.If so would it be possible to accelerate stable ions at a molecule with relatively weak bonds and break it up into is elements?
eg carbon monoxide to carbon oxygen.note:I couldn't get the attachments working because my computer was playing tricks on me!

shaking something, even very vigourously, won't break covalent bonds. especially in water.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

I beg to differ Mitch.  Go ahead and shake a bottle of Nitroglycerine.  You'll break a LOT of covalent bonds.   ;) ;D

I stand corrected. But this is not the case for water. :P

Some of it depends on how hard you shake the water.  By hand, no.  Shaking it with a shockwave the travels at 9000m/s, well, now you've got a different story.  So, yes, you can break bonds by motion, but depending on the substance, it might require a lot or a little motion.

I remember reading an article where they used a mechanical chamber that shook steel bearings in a solution instead of using chemical catalysts.
