Layered Graphene Sheets could solve hydrogen storage issues.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
March 18, 2010 According to research at NIST and University of Pennsylvania, graphene - carbon formed into sheets a single atom thick - appears to be promising base material for capturing hydrogen. Graphene does not store hydrogen well in its original form, but if oxidized graphene sheets are stacked atop one another, connected by molecules that link layers to one another and maintain space between them, graphene-oxide framework can accumulate hydrogen and potentially store hydrogen for fuel cells.
