Practical Hydrogen Storage for Fuel Cells Electrical Vehicles by Confined Ammonia Borane System (2010)
This project will develop a new strategy C confined Ammonia Borane (AB) within porous frameworks. It will enable the confined system to release hydrogen with a large capacity of ~7 wt% at a high rate of exceed 0.002 (g/s)/kW under a low temperature below 80C, e.g. fulfill the US Department of Energy target for practical hydrogen storage. The research of this project will focus on the synthesis of AB confined system, the mechanism of AB decomposition from the confined frameworks and the optimization of AB loading rate and particles size. The expected outcomes will be potential for practical hydrogen storage.
