More Efficient Catalysts for Chemical Hydrogen Storage


Study published in Chemical Science

As hydrogen emerges as a key energy vector of the 21st century, its large-scale storage and utilization remain major challenges. CNRS chemists propose new, more efficient and durable catalysts for “chemical” storage in organic molecules, from which it could be released on demand and in a controlled manner.
These findings, published in the journal Chemical Science, open new perspectives for the design of effective and durable catalysts for hydrogen storage from amine-borane compounds.
