Interests: hydrogen storage in metal hydrides; complex hydrides; carbon-based materials
Finding safe convenient ways to store hydrogen is perhaps the single most challenging problem facing the hydrogen economy. The ideal hydrogen storage material must have high gravimetric and volumetric hydrogen capacities, thermodynamic properties which allow for hydrogen sorption at moderate temperatures and relatively rapid kinetics. To date, no solid state material has been identified that meets all these criteria. This special issue of “Materials” will be devoted recent advances in all areas of hydrogen storage research including metal hydrides, complex hydrides and carbon based materials. It will provide scientists from around the world with a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and the dissemination of knowledge in this field.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
