Research Project:

   1. “Synthesis and characterization of complex metal hydrides and their composites

       for reversible hydrogen storage applications” Surface Engineering Laboratory,

       School of Semiconductor and Chemical Engineering, Chonbuk National University,

       Jeonju 561-756, South Korea. August 2005 – August 2009.

     The synthesis of novel chemical hydrides via metathesis reaction as well as high energy

ball milling was carried out. Owing to the air and moisture sensitivity of the precursor

materials, experiments were performed under controlled environment using standard Schlenk

techniques/Glove box. The work primarily focused on the dehydrogenation properties of

novel high storage capacity materials, such as LiAlH4, NaAlH4, NaBH4, LiNH2, NaNH2,

MgH2, CaH2 etc., via thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and mass spectroscopy (MS)

techniques. The research also involved the doping of the novel as well as commercial

chemical hydrides via solvent-mediated reaction of transition metal halides such as TiCl 3.

TiBr3, TiCl4, VCl3, ScCl3, MnCl2, NiCl2, ZnCl2 etc, Metal oxides such as TiO2, MoO3 etc

through direct ball milling of transition metals. We investigated the dehydrogenation kinetics

of novel and doped-chemical hydrides and compared it with that of commercially available

                                               5
standards. We exclusively utilized experimental techniques, such as thermogravimetric

analysis (TGA) and mass spectroscopy (MS) in order to derive quantitative information on the

kinetic data. The data derived was utilized to study the temperature induced phase changes in

the chemical hydrides. The hydrogenation of dehydrogenated samples and cyclic behavior

was performed in a state-of-the-art custom-built Sievert’s device. It was found that the

catalysts played an important role in reducing the decomposition temperature of alanates as

much as 50-70°C and enhanced kinetics as compared to undoped alanates. The catalyst as

believed by many researchers substitutes the primary metal in alanates and softens the Al-H

bond which gives its easy cleavage during the thermal process. Thus releases hydrogen at

lower temperature and shows good reversibility during the hydrogenation/dehydrogenation

process. The characterization of these tailored materials was done through different techniques

such as; X-ray diffraction (XRD), Infra-Red (IR), Raman spectroscopy, Field emission

electron scanning microscope (FESEM), Elemental distribution scanning (EDS)
