In a future world with renewable energies and less environmental pollution the major problem is energy storage. Owing to the high energy content by weight, hydrogen is one of the most promising energy carriers for mobile applications. However, hydrogen storage is still the major bottleneck for a fast commercialization of fuel-cell vehicles. The present technologies, as compressed gas or liquefied hydrogen, possess severe disadvantages and storage of hydrogen in light-weight solids or liquids could be the solution to this problem.
This Special Issue will focus on newest developments in hydrogen storage. Submission of papers on novel materials, possessing high and reversible hydrogen storage capacities, are especially emphasized.
