    Abstract

    Hydrogen
    storage is one of the vital and challenging issues for the commercialization of hydrogen-powered fuel cells. In this report, the synthesized PdAg nanotubes exhibit enhanced hydrogen-storage ability. The highest capacity for hydrogen absorption obtained on the PdAg nanotubes with 15% of Pd was over 200 times greater than the pure Pd nanoparticles.
