520 The problem of storing hydrogen safely and effectively is
one of the major technological barriers currently
preventing the widespread adoption of hydrogen as an
energy carrier and the subsequent transition to a so-
called hydrogen economy. Practical issues with the storage
of hydrogen in both gas and liquid form appear to make
reversible solid state hydrogen storage the most promising
potential solution. Hydrogen Storage Materials addresses
the characterisation of the hydrogen storage properties of
the materials that are currently being considered for this
purpose. The background to the topic is introduced, along
with the various types of materials that are currently
under investigation, including nanostructured interstitial
and complex hydrides, and porous materials, such as metal-
organic frameworks and microporous organic polymers. The
main features of Hydrogen Storage Materials include:an
overview of the different types of hydrogen storage
materials and the properties that are of interest for
their practical use;descriptions of the gas sorption
measurement methods used to determine these properties,
and the complementary techniques that can be used to help
corroborate hydrogen uptake data; andextensive coverage of
the practical considerations for accurate hydrogen
sorption measurement that drive both instrument design and
the development of experimental methodology. Hydrogen
Storage Materials provides an up-to-date overview of the
topic for experienced researchers, while including enough
introductory material to serve as a useful, practical
introduction for newcomers to the field.
