A no-go decision for carbon nanotubes in the DOE Hydrogen Program

Abstract:
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen Program has decided to discontinue (a "No-Go" decision) future applied research and development (R&D) investment in pure, undoped single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) for vehicular hydrogen storage applications. This decision is based on the previously established criterion that pure, undoped SWNTs have not met; achieving 6 weight percent hydrogen storage (on a materials basis) at close to room temperature. However, there are certain areas of carbon nanotube research, such as metal-doped hybrid materials, that may warrant additional R&D investment.
