Project Name: 
Synthesis of Transition Metal Doped Hollow Glass Microspheres for Hydrogen Storage Applications
Objective/Description: 

 

  • To synthesize the transition metal doped sodium borosilicate glass by melting as well as sol-gel technique.
  •  To prepare the hollow glass microspheres (HGM) of prepared glass using spray drying technique.
  •  To demonstrate the feasibility of HGM as a Hydrogen storage and delivery medium
  •  Estimation of H2 adsorption in HGM as function of transition metal doping.
