a discovery that may help accelerate production of fuel cell-powered vehicles are ultra-clean hydrogen, scientists in Michigan reported development of a sponge resembling nano materials with surface areas recorded very high to hold back some gas. Sepertigapuluh only one ounce of these materials have a surface area of about - something like a football field.

Adam Matzger and colleagues explain in their new study that scientists have been trying for many - years to find an optimal material for hydrogen storage in fuel cell vehicles in the future. Besides identifying some promising material, researchers have been able to find hydrogen storage goals proposed by the U.S. Department of Energy (the DOE) regarding the storage of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, they pointed out.
They explain the development of the nano porous materials - with high pore that has never proven ability to absorb some of the gas which may help to achieve the DOE target of. This is called the University of Michigan Crystalline Material-2 (UMCM-2), which include substances nanokluster zinc oxide, the width of each - tiapnya approximately 1 / 50, 000th of a human hair, are connected together - together by organic materials to produce porous framework is perfect.
The scientists showed that UMCM-2 has a surface area of more than 5.000 m2 per gram, where the highest value was obtained.
