Title: Hydrogen Storage in Novel Carbon-Based Nanostructured Materials

Abstract

Experimental wet chemical approaches to complex an iron atom with two C60 fullerenes, representing a new molecule, dubbed a 'bucky dumbbell', have been demonstrated. The structure of this molecule has been determined by 13C solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). Furthermore, this structure has been shown to have unique binding sites for dihydrogen molecules with the technique of temperature programmed desorption (TPD). The new adsorption sites have binding energies that are stronger than that observed for hydrogen physisorbed on planar graphite, but significantly weaker than a chemical C-H bond. Further development of these molecules could make them ideal candidates for onboard vehicular hydrogen storage.
