Advancement in hydrogen storage techniques represents one of the most important areas of today's materials research. While extensive efforts have been made to the existing techniques, there is no viable storage technology capable of meeting the DOE cost and performance targets at the present time. New materials with significantly improved hydrogen adsorption capability are needed. Microporous metal coordination materials (MMOM) are promising candidates for use as sorbents in hydrogen adsorption. These materials possess physical characteristics similar to those of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) but also exhibit a number of improved features. Here, we report a novel MMOM structure and its room-temperature hydrogen adsorption properties.
