Abstract

original image

Wasserstoffreiche Materialien, die in Nanogerüste eingebracht sind, bieten einen vielversprechenden Zugang zu bordeigenen Wasserstoffspeichern. Das mesoporöse Gerüst reduziert die Temperatur für die Wasserstoff-Freisetzung aus Ammoniakboran (AB), einem gängigen Wasserstoffspeicher, auf unter 80 °C und liefert reineren Wasserstoff. (Siehe schematische Darstellung eines H-Brücken-gebundenen AB-Netzwerks im Schnitt durch eine einzelne Pore.)
