Abstract

􏰕􏰰􏰰􏰐􏰂􏰜􏰈Ammonia borane (NH 3 BH 3 , AB) has been identified as a promising material for hydrogen storage due to its high

hydrogen content. Researchers are confined that by incorporating AB into clay matrices, they can create effective

hydrogen storage materials for use in fuel cells and other applications. In this study, AB was confined into

nanotubular and micro-fibrous clays as halloysite and sepiolite for solid-state hydrogen storage applications. First

of all, clays were treated by three different approach before the confinement application. The observations

highlights the advantages of using acid activation to increase the performance of the clay in this application,

compared to thermal activation which showed no change or decreased performance. The confinement of AB in

the activated clay has shown improved results, making acid activation a promising approach to enhance the

performance of hydrogen generation. This research was supported by Yildiz Technical University (Project No:

FBA-2022-5316).
