Research Achievements

Faculty-student team research storage of hydrogen

The student and faculty members of the STAIR Task 2 research team model, synthesize, and characterize new materials for the efficient storage of hydrogen. The STAIR Trainees dedicated to this task are A. Albert (Chemistry), M. Everett (Material Science Engineering), P. Ward (Chemistry) and Associate N. Suraweera (Chemical Engineering). During this reporting period, trainees have developed new methods for hydrogen adsorption characterization using low-temperature/high-pressure Raman spectroscopy. In addition, they have conducted molecular modeling studies of hydrogen uptake on proposed new nanoporous materials. The group has prepared titanium-silicate materials for characterization by X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS ) spectroscopy at National Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
