2_05b/2012Hydrogen Storage: Catalytic Influence of Various Cerium Precursors on the Hydrogen Sorption Properties of NaAlH4 (Adv. Energy Mater. 5/2012)

The hydrogen sorption kinetics of NaAlH4 can be enhanced with various cerium dopants. On page 560, J. J. Hu and co-workers achieve an immediate acceleration of hydrogen desorption upon formation of cerium aluminide. Reversible hydrogen storage using NaAlH4, with a capacity close to theoretical values, is realized by direct introduction of Ce powder followed by a heat treatment. Hydrogen capacity persists under the operating conditions of a High Temperature Fuel Cell, which is interesting for the energy conversion of hydrogen to electricity.
