Recent achievements on materials for hydrogen storage

After a brief introduction on the problems related to hydrogen storage, recent trends of the research on hydrogen storage materials are presented and discussed: metal hydrides; nanostructured magnesium-based hydrides; nanocomposites based on mixtures of amides and hydrides, amides and alanates, and borohydrides and hydrides; chemical hydrides; and nonhydride systems. The aim of the paper is to show that, even if none of these studied materials satisfies all the requirements for a very wide practical use, some niche applications are already feasible.

Keywords: hydrogen storage, metal hydrides, complex hydrides, hydrogen absorption kinetics, hydrogen desorption kinetics, hydrogen absorption thermodynamics, hydrogen desorption thermodynamics, hydrogen tanks, storage materials
