The pollution generated by the use and storage of fossil fuels has created a clear demand for alternative sources of clean and renewable energy. The main disadvantage of some renewable sources is the intermittency in energy generation, i.e., solar, wind power. To help balance the energy supply and demand, the generation must be accompanied by energy storage systems.
A promising solution is the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier for clean energy because of its non-toxicity, high specific energy, and non-CO2 emission after combustion. The challenge is to find hydrogen storage materials with high capacity.
Your research will focus on the study of different crystalline porous materials such as Metal-Organic frameworks (MOFs), zeolites, and Covalent-Organic frameworks (COFs), for storage and purification of hydrogen. Your task is to investigate the adsorption properties of the materials and characterize the most promising candidates with a particular interest in the energetic features of the system. To translate the results into real-world applications, the systems will be assessed as adsorption-based energy storage systems.
You can and are encouraged to change and define your own research line within the project framework in collaboration with your supervisors, A. Luna-Triguero and D.M.J. Smeulders.Functie-eisen
