Carbon and Boron Nitride nanostructures for Hydrogen storage applications through a theoretical perspective

  title={Carbon and Boron Nitride nanostructures for Hydrogen storage applications through a theoretical perspective},
  author={Yadunath Singh and B. Chettri and A. Banik and Kingsley Onyebuchi Obodo and Dibya Prakash Rai},
The recent progress in the field of hydrogen storage in carbon and boron nitride nanostructures has been summarized. Carbon and boron nitride nanostructures are considered advantageous in this prospect due to their lightweight and high surface area. Demerits of pristine structures to hold hydrogen molecules for mobile applications have been highlighted by many researchers. In such cases, weak van der Waals interaction comes into account, hence, the hydrogen molecules are weakly bonded with the… Expand
