Methodological, applied and thermodynamic aspects of hydrogen sorption by graphite and related carbon nanostructures

Author affiliations


Results of the experimental and theoretical investigations into hydrogen sorption by various carbon nanostructures, including fullerenes, single-walled and multi-walled nanotubes, nanofibres, nanographite and nanographite-based composites are surveyed. Results of a thermodynamic analysis of the most significant experimental data are presented. The emphasis is placed on the studies reporting the extremum sorption parameters. The thermodynamic and kinetic (diffusion) parameters and equations describing the sorption processes are refined. The prospects of the applications of new carbon nanomaterials for hydrogen storage in the automotive industry are discussed. The bibliography includes 206 references.
