HyCARE at the School of Physical Chemistry

The School of Physical Chemistry is a yearly event organised in Verbania and promoted by the “Divisione di Chimica Fisica della Società chimica Italiana” covering fundamentals and advanced topics in Physical Chemistry.

The School is addressed to Italian and foreign graduate and Ph.D. students, as well as to post-doc and young researchers. It consists of a five-days training of lectures provided by prominent scientists active in today’s research covering the field of nanostructures and nanomaterials, from synthetic approaches to advanced characterization methods, and giving the latest insights into up-to-date aspects and applications of nanostructured materials with special emphasis to nanocomposites, bio-nanomaterials, heterogeneous catalysts, environmental, cultural heritage, and energy applications.

On Thusday 22 June 2023, Marcello Baricco – Coordinator of HyCARE Project and Professor at the Department of Chemistry and NIS (University of Turin) – gave the lesson “Nanomaterials for H2 storage”.

The lecture focused on the role of nanostructured materials and of interfaces on thermodynamic and kinetic properties of hydrogen storage materials. In particular, hydrogen absorption and desorption in metal and complex hydrides will be discussed. In order to lower the enthalpy of reaction, reactive hydride composites (RHC), consisting in combining two hydrides, will be also considered.

HyCARE presented at the Accademia delle Scienze of Turin

On the 7th of June 2023 at 4PM, a session of the of the Physical, Mathematical and Natural Sciences took place in the Accademia delle Scienze of Turin.

The Academy of Science is a private body that since 1783 contributes to scientific progress, through the promotion of research, organisation of congresses, conventions, seminars, conferences. It maintains and increases a rich and important library and a historical archive where documents relating to the history of science and technology are kept.

During the session, a specific part was dedicated to the materials for managing hydrogen where Marcello Baricco and Livio Battezzati were invited to speak.

Baricco as HyCARE Coordinator spoke about the innovative technology developed within the HyCARE project!!

Prof.Baricco speaks about HyCARE at the AMT2023

On the 20th of June 2023, Prof. Marcello Baricco – Coordinator of HyCARE Project – held the lecture “Materials for hydrogen handling” during the plenary session as invited speaker in the Advanced Materials and Technologies Conference.

During the lecture, Baricco provided the audience with an overview on the current materials used for handling hydrogen, and reported that the HyCARE project developed an efficient metal hydride-based system for the storage of renewables energies, with a planned quantity of 50 kg of stored hydrogen.

Some information on the event:

The first Advanced Materials and Technologies Conference was held in 1961. The AMT’2023 follows this periodical event, organized every three years under the auspices of Polish Materials Science Society, which is a member of Federation of European Materials Society FEMS.

The AMT’2023 topics include the following five areas:

  • Functional and structural materials,
  • Advanced thermal, mechanical and chemical processing and surface engineering,
  • Materials characterization and modeling,
  • Materials applications: materials for transportation, materials for electronic, biomaterials and bioengineering, materials for energy,
  • Young researchers – Advanced materials and technologies.
