H2TEM focused on hydrogen production, synthesis of hydrogen storage medium, and application of catalytic systems. H2TEM also cooperated with Energy and Material laboratory (EML): In H2TEM, various kinds of nano-sized materials in the form of particles, fibers etc. can be specifically synthesized by nanotechnologies methods.
Energetic and catalytic materials in micro and nano-sizes can be designed with the targeted characteristics by novel methods such as electrospinning technology, hydrothermal methods, and new generation methods with green chemistry approach. In addition, facilities for traditional methods i.e., sol-gel, impregnation, co-precipitation, solid-state, and in-situ reduction are also available. Continuous and batch-type reactors are also in the inventory of the lab. On the other hand, the capabilities of EML are catalyst and electrocatalyst production, hydrogen production from hydrocarbons (e.g., methane, biogas), electrochemical characterization of developed electrocatalysts, cell development and design (mostly for SOFC), electrolysis cell design (with batch system features). Simultaneous process gas analysis can also be performed to investigate the catalyst activity.
