Storage and distribution are the main difficulties to be overcome in developing the onboard applications of hydrogenThe simplest and lightest atom, the most abundant element in the universe. , notably in the very promising automotive sector. Researchers are making advances, however, notably in solid storage solutions that avoid compression or liquefactionConversion of a gas to a liquid. In industrial applications, gas is liquefied by cooling and/or pressurization....
