On the pathway to novel hydrogen storage materials

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht and their European partners have developed a new chemical system for storing solid hydrogen. The special combination of hydrides allows overcoming some of the most serious drawbacks associated to the use of this class of materials. This represents a real milestone in the development of hydrogen storage technology for mobile and stationary applications. The scientists’ results were published in the renowned journal “Journal of Materials Chemistry” today. more
