Hope revived for storing hydrogen in nanocarbon

... a team from Canada and Germany claims that the previous theoretical estimates were hampered by inaccurate assumptions about the way hydrogen molecules interact with graphite-like carbon. They say that a more accurate treatment of the problem shows that the DOE figure should be well within reach under technologically acceptable conditions provided that the correct sort of nanostructured carbon host material can be identified.
