Study on Graphene-Wrapped Nanocrystals Makes Inroads Toward Next-Gen Fuel Cells

Scientific Achievement

A team of Foundry scientists have determined how graphene-coated magnesium hydride is able to store and release hydrogen gas safely and easily.

Significance and Impact

This work completes the trifecta of synthesis, in situ characterization, and theoretical understanding of a H2 gas storage system, which will lead to better energy conversion systems and technologically viable hydrogen storage.
