Center for Hydrogen Storage

The project goals include: (1) establishing a Center for Hydrogen Storage Research at Delaware State University for the preparation and characterization of selected complex metal hydrides and the determination of their suitability for hydrogen storage; (2) developing methods for the synthesis, characterization, and modeling of complex hydrides; (3) identifying the most promising types of destabilized hydrides and demonstrate the optimum temperature/pressure range and sorption kinetics of the hydrides under a variety of conditions; (4) determining their cycle stability and develop improved sorption catalysts; and (5) performing kinetic modeling studies and develop methods for improving kinetics and lowering reaction times.
