A feasible solution to the problem of urban pollution is hydrogen propelled zero-emission vehicles. Fundamental studies of the processes involved in hydrogen adsorption and release by carbon beryllium-containing lithium hydrides were carried out to enable the design of efficient hydrogen storage materials for transportation applications. The C-Be containing Li Hydrides were better than just the Li-Be hydrides in terms of their adsorption and desorption kinetics. A specific ratio of carbon to beryllium need to be present to lower the formation enthalpy of the hydrides. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2006 AIChE Annual Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2006).
