Team proposes ‘nano-chocolates’ as a new way to store hydrogen

The palladium nanoparticles (green) are stabilized by a core of iridium (red). Hydrogen can accumulate on their surface like a kind of chocolate glaze—and can be released again by heating. Credit: DESY, Andreas Stierle An innovative approach could turn nanoparticles into simple reservoirs for storing hydrogen. The highly volatile gas…
