Hydrogen fuel is considered as a most promising alternative energy source for vehicles and portable electronics. For this technology to be practical for automobiles, the U.S. Department of Energy has established a design target of 6.0 wt% reversible hydrogen storage by 2010, but current materials fall far short of this goal. Consequently, many studies are devoted to metal hydride and carbon-based materials. Furthermore, such novel concepts as BN nanotubes, clathrate hydrates, and metal– organic… CONTINUE READING
