The next several years will see an emergence of hydrogen fuel cells as an alternative energy option in both transportation and domestic use. A vital area of this technological breakthrough is hydrogen storage, as fuel cells will not be able to operate without a store of hydrogen. The book focuses on solid state storage of hydrogen. Part 1 covers storage technologies, hydrogen containmant materials, hydrogen futures and storage system design. Part 2 analyses porous storage materials, while Part 3 covers metal hydrides. Complex hydrides are examined in Part 4 and Part 5 covers chemical hydrides. Finally, Part 6 is dedicated to analysing hydrogen interactions.Dr Gavin Walker is a leading authority on hydrogen storage. He works at the University of Nottingham, is a partner in the UK Research Councils? Supergen Hydrogen Consortium UKSHEC and is a UK expert for the International Energy Agency?s Task 22 on hydrogen storage materials.
