Characterize sorption, desorption, selectivity of H2 storage materials
The efficiency of hydrogen storage materials needs improvement for best application.
H2 storage capacity
The efficiency of hydrogen storage materials is linked with their capacity to absorb large amounts of gas. You can use manometry to characterize how much hydrogen a material can store, up to high pressure levels.
H2 storage kinetics
If the material absorbs a lot of gas but the reaction takes days, it isn’t a practical material to recharge a hydrogen vehicle. You can characterize the efficiency of hydrogen storage materials by their rate (or kinetics) of reaction. Manometry is the ideal tool for kinetics measurements, up to high pressure levels.
Heat of sorption
The hydrogen charging process releases large amounts of heat. To avoid overheating in the storage tank during charging, you need to measure the heat release accurately. Calorimetry or DSC coupled to manometry are the ideal solutions for this.
