Final Report Summary - MATERHY (Development and characterisation of novel materials for hydrogen storage)

Hydrogen storage is considered to be the key challenge in achieving hydrogen based energy economy. The long-term solution especially for mobile applications is hydrogen storage in solid materials. Light-weight complex hydrides are considered as the most promising materials. The project addresses synthesis of novel anion-substituted borohydrides by ball milling and characterisation with respect to thermodynamics, kinetics and structure. Partial substitution of an element, i.e. hydrogen, with a more electronegative element changes the bond strength of the remaining elements, and it may facilitate release of hydrogen.
