The palladium nanoparticles (green) are stabilized by a core of iridium (red) atop a bed of graphene. Hydrogen can accumulate on their surface like a kind of chocolate glaze – and can be easily released by heating it up.

Announced just before the end of 2021, a team led by the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron or DESY research center, laid the foundation for an alternative method of storing hydrogen gas using palladium nanoparticles wrapped around a core of iridium, which can attract and accumulate hydrogen like a kind of chocolate glaze.

Considered a promising energy carrier of the future, hydrogen as fuel pres...
