Title: Improving the Kinetics and Thermodynamics of Mg(BH 4) 2 for Hydrogen Storage

Abstract

The objective of this project is to (1) combine theory, synthesis, and characterization across multiple scales to understand the intrinsic kinetic and thermodynamic limitations in MgB 2/Mg(BH 4) 2; (2) construct and apply a flexible, validated, multiscale theoretical framework for modeling (de)hydrogenation kinetics of the Mg-B-H system and related metal hydrides; and (3) devise strategies for improving kinetics and thermodynamics, particularly through nanostructuring and doping. The project has an emphasis on understanding and improving rehydrogenation of MgB 2, which has generally been less explored and is key to enabling practical use.
