Analyzing a Hydrogen Storage Material

By: Jaime Rodriguez Background: With hydrogen technology research reaching an all-time high, several different materials to store this element have been analyzed. Palladium is a hydrogen storage material under heavy consideration, due to the fact that it can absorb immense amounts of hydrogen. Although practical, one disadvantage is that it is indeed a precious metal, thus it is expensive. Also, as hydrogen is absorbed it spreads the existing palladium particles apart and therefore certain compounds will stick to the surface. […]
