Carbon based material offers hydrogen storage densities better than solid hydrogen without pressure

With the rise in interest of a so-called "hydrogen-economy" and switching to vehicles burning hydrogen or using it in fuel cells, a critical challenge has become how to store hydrogen. Many experts think that in order for hydrogen-powered vehicles to be competitive in terms of range with modern gas vehicles, hydrogen will need to be stored at densities greater than that of liquid hydrogen. Such super compression brings up complex problems of safety and costs.

A recent DailyTech article describes how scientists are developing plans to store hydrogen in carbon fullerene structures, such as "buckyballs". Now, the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) demonstrated a promising new storage technique using another exotic class of carbon materials.   [Comments...]
