  author={Jordan K. Pommerenck and Cory M. Simon and David Roundy},
  journal={arXiv: Chemical Physics},
We present a theoretical upper bound on the deliverable capacity of a gas in a rigid material via an isothermal pressure-swing. To provide an extremum, we consider a substrate that provides a spatially uniform potential energy field for the gas. Our bound is unique in that it directly relies on experimentally measured properties of the (real) bulk gas, without making approximations. We conclude that the goals set by the United States Department of Energy for room temperature natural gas and… 



Methane storage in flexible metal–organic frameworks with intrinsic thermal management

Flexible compounds Fe(bdp) and Co(BDp) (bdp2− = 1,4-benzenedipyrazolate) are shown to undergo a structural phase transition in response to specific CH4 pressures, resulting in adsorption and desorption isotherms that feature a sharp ‘step’.

Exploring the Limits of Methane Storage and Delivery in Nanoporous Materials

The physical limits for methane storage and delivery in nanoporous materials were investigated, with a focus on whether it is possible to reach a methane deliverable capacity of 315 cm3(STP)/cm3 in

Optimizing nanoporous materials for gas storage.

This work addresses the question of which thermodynamic factors determine the deliverable capacity of methane in nanoporous materials and develops several statistical thermodynamic models aimed to determine how this optimal heat of adsorption is related to the molecular structure of the material.

Balancing volumetric and gravimetric uptake in highly porous materials for clean energy

The simulation-motivated synthesis of ultraporous metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) based on metal trinuclear clusters, namely, NU-1501-M (M = Al or Fe), achieves high gravimetric and volumetric uptake and delivery of methane and hydrogen and exhibits one of the best deliverable hydrogen capacities.

High-Pressure Methane Adsorption in Porous Lennard-Jones Crystals.

It is contended that the computational methodology can be useful for discovering useful structure-property relationships related to gas adsorption without requiring experimentally accessible structural data.

Evaluating metal–organic frameworks for natural gas storage

Metal–organic frameworks have received significant attention as a new class of adsorbents for natural gas storage; however, inconsistencies in reporting high-pressure adsorption data and a lack of

Optimum conditions for adsorptive storage.

It is demonstrated that for maximum delivery of the gas the optimum adsorbent must be homogeneous, and that introduction of heterogeneity, such as by ball milling, irradiation, and other means, can only provide small increases in physisorption-related delivery for hydrogen.

Understanding Volumetric and Gravimetric Hydrogen Adsorption Trade-off in Metal-Organic Frameworks.

This work studies the trade-off between volumetric and gravimetric cryo-adsorbed hydrogen deliverable capacity by taking an isoreticular series of highly stable zirconium MOFs, NU-1101, N U-1102, and Nu-1103 as a case study and finds better correlations with geometric surface areas than with BET areas.
