Making hydrogen storage more efficient

A new molecule could allow for easier transportation of hydrogen, contributing to its viability as an alterative fuel source.

Hydrogen doesn’t release harmful emissions when burnt but it must be kept at high pressures. This means it needs more energy to transport.

The new water-soluble molecule allows for the hydrogen to be transported as a liquid, and can also turn it back into a gas when needed.
