History of Collaboration on Hydrogen Storage

2008  Ji Woo KIM (1. 2. 2008 - 31. 1. 2009) as PhD student at EMPA Div. Hydrogen & Energy. Investigation of the reaction mechanism of the destabilized LiBH4 system with Al additive, so called reactive composite hydrides.

2008 KOREAN- SWISS INTER-GOVERNMENTAL COOPERATION PROGRAM “Novel complex metal hydrides for hydrogen storage”, 2 years, between Young Whan Cho, Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) and Andreas Züttel EMPA Div. Hydrogen & Energy. [4, 5, 6]

2012  Collaborative research agreement “Properties of Nanosized Hydrides” between Young Whan Cho, Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) and Andreas Züttel EMPA Div. Hydrogen & Energy for 2 years.

So far a total of 7 joint publications in this area

Next Step: Stability of adsorbed C-H species

Cluster synthesis, DFT calculations, Hydrides

RESULTS

Towards room temperature, direct, solvent free synthesis of tetraborohydrides, e.g. LiBH4

Due to their high hydrogen content, tetraborohydrides are discussed as potential synthetic energy carriers. On the example of lithium borohydride LiBH4, we discuss current approaches of direct, solvent free synthesis based on gas solid reactions of the elements or binary hydrides and/or borides with gaseous H2 or B2H6. The direct synthesis from the elements requires high temperature and high pressure (700°C, 150bar D2). Using LiB or AlB2 as boron source reduces the required temperature by more than 300 K.
