    • Abstract:
      "Developing safe, cost-effective, and practical means of hydrogen storage is essential for the advancement of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. There is much interest in certain destabilized metal hydrides and in metal organic frameworks which have great potential for hydrogen storage. The main goals of this project were to (1) Establish a Center for Hydrogen Storage Research at Delaware State University for the preparation and characterization of selected complex metal hydrides and the determination their suitability for hydrogen storage. (2) Develop methods for the synthesis, characterization, and modeling of complex hydrides using LiBH4/MgH2 as a model system. (3) Identify the most promising types of complex hydrides destabilized hydrides and demonstrate the optimum temperature/pressure range and sorption kinetics of the hydrides under a variety of conditions. (4) Determine their cyclic stability and develop improved sorption catalysts. (5) Perform kinetic modeling studies and develop methods for improving kinetics and lowering reaction temperatures. (6) Extend the studies to include several new destabilized systems that have been predicted, based on first principles calculations, to have good potential for hydrogen storage. (7) Extend the studies to include carbon-based materials such as metal organic frameworks (MOFs) that also have great potential for hydrogen storage."
