Nanocomposite for High Capacity Hydrogen Storage

IB-2918

APPLICATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY:

ADVANTAGES:

ABSTRACT:

Researchers at Berkeley Lab have designed a new composite material for hydrogen storage. The nanocomposite materials rapidly absorbs and releases hydrogen at modest temperatures without oxidizing the metal.
