Reversible hydrogen sorption in the composite made of magnesium borohydride and silica aerogel

The application of hydrogen as an energy vector requires the development of new hydrogen storage systems. Magnesium borohydride Mg(BH4)2 is a promising hydrogen storage material because of its high hydrogen storage capacity (14,8wt% H2, 0.112 Kg/L). However, it is still limited by slow hydrogen release kinetics and by the harsh conditions required for reversible hydrogen […]
