Porous Carbons for Hydrogen Storage

Abstract

Porous carbon-based materials are promising candidates as adsorbents to increase the gravimetric and volumetric uptake of hydrogen at cryogenic temperatures and moderate pressures. In most cases, this uptake increases linearly with surface area, but strategies to increase uptake beyond that predicted by this “chahine rule,” to increase surface area, and to otherwise improve these materials are discussed.
