The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to provide funding to University of Hawaii (UH) to develop a novel material for hydrogen storage and delivery applications. Specifically, liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) solutions of magnesium borohydride and advanced pincer catalysts would be synthesized and analyzed for their hydrogen storage capabilities. The materials would be developed to have improved performance efficiency (e.g. hydrogen cycling kinetics, thermodynamics and hydrogen storage capacities), as compared to current technologies.
