+ - Storing hydrogen into organic molecules

Submitted by
Roland Piquepaille
Roland Piquepaille writes "While it is possible to store hydrogen in metal containers to use as fuel in hydrogen-powered vehicles, it is not today a cost-effective solution. But now, researchers at the University of California at Riverside (UCR) have identified organic molecules that mimic metals. They've used carbenes, molecules which contain a carbon atom with only six electrons, to demonstrate that these organic molecules could be used for storing hydrogen. Read more for additional references and a picture of such a very special molecule."
