High pressure and high temperature XRD studies of hydrogen storage materials

Hydrogen is recognized as a potential and “clean” energy carrier but the H2 storage is still a key technological challenge. Hydrogen can be stored either as a gas or as a liquid, or, in a safer way, by using a material able to reversibly absorb and desorb H2. The structural modifications during gas sorption can be studied in situ by X-ray diffraction (XRD) in dedicated sample environments. In this presentation in situ studies of H2 storage materials on a PANalytical multipurpose X-ray diffraction system are described.

Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EST (3:00 PM - 4:00 PM CET)

Panelist Information:
Marco Sommariva studied Material Science in Milan (Italy), with a thesis on synthesis and characterization of solid electrolytes for lithium batteries. Marco then moved on with a post-doc at the British ISIS neutron source working on a project about complex hydrides for hydrogen storage, before joining PANalytical in 2011 as Application Specialist XRD, in Almelo (The Netherlands).
